"My blog is a way for me to communicate my love for Monterosa, and to share my philosophy of respect of the environment, the people and the culture of the Alps" Marta Capetillo Read the blog
I am passionate about the Alps, they are my heart's home and the place where I would like to spend the last day of my life. I have been a tourist in the village of Champoluc in the Italian Monterosa for all my life and work as a tourist operator in this area since more than 15 years.
I believe in respect for the special environment of this places, with flowers and animals that you can find only here. Not to talk about the glaciers and the importance of the water for the rest of Europe. I believe that we all gain by enjoying this beautiful environment, but trying to make a minimum of inpact. Leave this for our children and for the future.
I believe in respect for the people who live here with their traditions and their culture, their language, their work on the territory, their genuine products, their wines. They open their homes for us tourists and meet us as their guests, if we are able to open our hearts for them. I have a friend who is a hotel owner and he says that when stressed people from the city come to his place, he tells them to sit down and take a drink before they even begin to worry if they have a room. Perhaps we can bring a little of this kindness and calm with us to the city when we get back.
My philosophy is to give back a little of what the mountains and the people from this place have given to me and to my family through my work, to communicate my philosophy and my passion to the people who follow me on my web sites and in my trips as a tour operator.
I write a blog to spread my thoughts and the experiences I make during my tours and my skiing trips with my guests.
I would like to use my web sites: www.monterosa.com and http://www.thealps.com/ as channels to communicate about a more respectful and genuine tourism. And I am ready to open them to people with the same philosophy, weather they are "tourists" or inhabitants of the Alps.
Because I believe this is the only way to help our world become a better place!"

The organization of the classic race has decided to ostpone the start because of the very bad weather forecasts for this week-end. At the moment it is not yet decided when it will be possible to start. Hopefully the participants have to wait only for a couple of days. News on www.trofeomezzalama.org
