Imposing castles, clear lakes, rough snow covered peaks: South Tyrol, the home of Reinhold Messner. Many consider Reinhold Messner to be a German, some an Austrian or an Italian. Messner is not all this – he is South Tyrolean. Breathtaking images unfold the panorama of an unprecedented life in and with the mountains. The first episode of the series tells the story of Messner’s childhood and youth, of his first climbing tours in the Dolomites, to which he set a special memorial with his Messner Mountain Museum Dolomites.
