The Authors
Ettore Tomasi is a mountaineer, naturalist and publishing consultant. Since 1958 he's been hiking, climbing mountains and dedicating himself to naturalistic research. He has published a number of articles, hiking guides and scientific works. Walking all over Europe he has developed a deep knowledge of different mountain chains and environments. He's collaborating with the Università degli Studi di Trieste as well as the Museo di Storia Naturale di Trieste, and researching into cecidology in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, particularly in his Parco Naturale delle Prealpi Giulie. Mount Nanos catched his attention in 1966: since then he keeps exploring the mountain in order to practice and to do botanical and historical research.

Giovanni Stegù, born in 1944, is a keen sportsman (athletics and volleyball) in his young years before shifting to sailing. On few occasions he experiences hiking during rare summer holidays in the mountains. The big change takes palce ten years ago, when he joins C.A.I. (Club Alpino Italiano) to attend the course called "Rose d'Inverno" (Winter Roses) organized by the Associazione XXX Ottobre in Trieste. Ettore Tomasi happens to be his instructor and they soon become friends discovering to have a passion in common: the mountains.
