Mario Piacenza

The Sella Foundation conserves all Mario Piacenza’s films but there are only a few prints of the period, most of which were made by Vittorio Sella and are conserved today at the Museum of the Mountains in Turin. Over 2,000 films belonging to the Sella Foundation document ascents in the Alps, especially the Matterhorn, family excursions, the trip to Caucasus and Persia (1910), to India, Ladakh, the Himalayas, Sikkim and Kashmir (1913).
