The Alps style
A weekend at the foot of Monte Bianco between Val Ferret and Planaval. With who? Jacopo, Velasca’s co-founder, during one of his outdoor trips to clear his mind in nature and to find good vibes for the upcoming week.
You get out of work on Friday eve and leave
Jacopo drives his car towards the mountains. It’s way better to get there in the evening, eat proper Italian food and wake up on the peaks. The air is refreshing.
You’ve got the entire Saturday to chill and explore
No alarm: Jacopo wakes up slowly, taking his time. Why? It’s Saturday and there are no plans for the day. And, in some spots, there’s no internet reception: the day in the wilderness starts for real.
Enjoy every last moment before driving back to the city
Walking up and down trails to discover hidden cabins ― and taste local products ― is just what he needs. It’s Sunday and Jacopo feels in peace, before getting in the the car to drive towards Milan.
It's you, the mountain and nothing else. Into the Italian wilderness. Inside the magazine, you can read stories that smell like the weekend.
