Photographer's Note

Last look at the summit Monte Paterno.

Monte Paterno (Paternkofel) with a height of 2744 m is one of the important peaks of the Sesto Dolomites. Located just off the border between South Tyrol and Belluno, the mountain was a difficult area between the Italian and Austrian forces during World War I. To this day you can see the remains of the war in the mountains in 1915–1918.
In 1882, Franz Innerkofler and Erich Künigl entered Monte Paterno for the first time. Franz Innerkofler, a mountain guide to the Val Pusteria valley, contributed to the opening of the Sesto Dolomites and made many of the first entries.
