Born in the Aosta Valley where he later worked, he was an amateur photographer and mountaineer, almost unknown to the press of the time. He was co-founder of CAI UGET of Turin. Gallino wrote an impressive record of all his climbs, illustrated with numerous drawings and photographs which provide important documentation of the history of mountaineering of that time. As well as photographer and mountaineer Giuseppe Gallino was also a painter, designer, parchment writer and miniaturist. He was the author of the allegorical historic postcards of the Italian Army Corps who took part in the First World War.
