The tale of an adventure far away from everything and everybody.
A few days before the departure of the new Ferrino Ambassador Michele Pontrandolfo, the Italian Polar explorer who will try to reach solo the 90 degree North parallel, we discover which Ferrino equipment will carry with him for this adventure.
During the annual meeting of Ferrino’s HighLab Pro Team we had the opportunity to exchange views with Piergiorgio Vidi, a well known professional of the high mountains and responsible for the Highlab Pro Team.
Michele Pontrandolfo, a polar explorer of international standing, joins the team of Ferrino’s athletes, bringing in his extended experiences and record adventures to this Italian outdoor brand.
