229 years ago the man conquered the Mont Blanc.

A doodle to celebrate an historic: the choice of Google today is to remember the 229esimo anniversary of the first ascent of Mont Blanc. It was on August 8, 1786 and the ‘heroes’ ascension was Jacques Balmat and Michel Gabriel Paccard. The two climbers reached the summit after 14 hours from the start and remained there for about half an hour
In the beginning was the Mont Maudit, the “Cursed Mountain” inaccessible, arcane, and why, in the imagination of the most populated with scary monsters.
Then came the scientists to explore this mysterious world to reveal its secrets. In the mid ‘800 with the top climbers and the birth of modern mountaineering, the Mont Blanc opened to men in its fascinating greatness.
The climbing history of Mount Blanc begins August 8, 1786 with the arrival at the top of Jacques Balmat and Michel Gabriel Paccard and time was of great epics ground and unique experience: the streets of Edward wimper, the adventures of rock and ice of the famous Italian guides, French and Swiss during the Belle Epoque and the extraordinary rock and ice routes opened in the period between the two world wars.
A doodle to celebrate an historic: the choice of Google today is to remember the 229esimo anniversary of the first ascent of Mont Blanc. It was on August 8, 1786 and the ‘heroes’ of the Ascension were, as mentioned, Jacques Balmat and Michel Gabriel Paccard. The two climbers reached the summit after 14 hours from the start and remained there for about half an hour.

The scientist Horace-Benedict de Saussure was raffled, in 1760, three guineas to those who had conquered the summit of Mont Blanc: mission accomplished only after 26 years. They spent 26 years before his dream came true. The company had been preceded by some surveys, one of which Balmat was lost and was forced to spend the night in the snow, then eventuality considered dangerous, as to leave no hope, because of the temperature.
The rise was followed constantly with the telescope by the Prussian baron Adolf von Gersdorff that from a hill above the town of Chamonix followed step by step movements write it down in a journal.
The thirties, then, saw the race “last great walls” by legendary personalities such as Riccardo Cassin and Pierre Allain, the Second World War instead saw the spotlight extraordinary figures such as Walter Bonatti and René Desmaison.

Today, the great exploits of champions such as Christophe Profit, Michel Piola and Patrick Gabarrou, alongside lesser-known adventures of thousands of climbers from all over the globe whose greatest desire is to climb Mont Blanc.
The first ascent of Mont Blanc from the Italian side dates back to August 13, 1863 and was completed by three guides of Courmayeur, Julien Grange, Adolphe Orset and Jean-Marie Perrod, with English Reginald Head and is known as the path of the Trois Mont Blanc , a name inspired by the three peaks, which, like the steps of a scale suitable for giant, brought them to the top: Tacul, Maudit, Mont Blanc.
With its 4810.02 meters high (last official measure in September 2013] is the highest mountain in the Alps, Italy, France and Central Europe in general, and of granitic, bristling with spiers and ridges, carved by deep valleys in which flow numerous glaciers. he shares with Mount Elbrus in the Caucasus at a place between so-called Seven Summits of the Planet.
The first ever winter ascent was completed January 31, 1876 by Miss I. Straton, Jean Charlet, Sylvain Couttet, for Grand Mulets and the ridge of the Bosses.

The first winter crossing was completed January 5, 1887 by Alexander, Corradino, Erminio and Vittorio Sella, Emile Rey, Jean Joseph, and Daniel Baptiste Maquignaz, and two carriers. They went the way of the Rocher de la Tournette and descended from Grand Mulets day.
The first woman to reach the summit was Marie Paradis July 14, 1808 accompanied by his son Gédéon 14 years and as a guide Jacques Balmat. The company earned its the name of Marie du Mont Blanc. The second female ascension has instead been made by Henriette Angeville of September 4, 1838, while the first woman to make the climb during the winter was Mary Isabella Stratton January 31, 1876 along with Jean Charlet, Sylvain Couttet Balmat and Michel. A Marguette Bouvier, in 1929, developed the first ski descent made by a woman.

This year will be remembered as an event of the French, because even in the women triumphed a transalpine. A win was Mauclair Nathalie, who dominated the race from the start while remaining firmly in the lead.
Italian hopes stopped, however, the Col de la Seigne, where the athlete Valdaostan Francesca Canepa (on the eve of one of the favorites to win) withdrew. To explain why it is, in a post on Facebook, the same Canepa: “Having always hated the descent from Bonhomme to Chapieux I avoided any risk, going as quietly as possible but above all, here is the point, avoiding drinking or risk smash the façade tells Canepa- So I came down redone, and given the ban on filling the water bottles with drinks, I have complied with the restrictions and I clearly exceeded consumption on the premises “. Canepa has therefore continued to Col de la Seigne, but wrote on Facebook, “I appeared nausea and vomiting. Head spinning, legs that are empty. In practice too much drink all together, more effort and wind have made the disaster. Arrived staggered the tent medicaments continues Canepa- atop the Seigne after an infinite time I was held in and heated heatedly x about an hour, then stabilized and transported on a stretcher. ”
To see the flag of Italian on the podium of the Ultra trail will have to wait, then, next year, when at the end of August there will be a new edition of the race. But the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc is not just a race, a dream for every runner, is also an organizational machine that involves every year two thousand volunteers. Moreover, in the days of the five races (Ptl, the CCC, the Tds and Occ) in the 38 dining options they were distributed 23 thousand cereal bars, 15 thousand liters of drinks, 9 thousand bananas and many of soup. Record numbers for the company as superheroes.

Casiraghi and Borromeo families of fairytale weddings

Formal as her sisters, Lavinia and Isabella, majestic as the grandmother of him, Grace Kelly, or fairytale like Andrea and Tatiana. To be inspired Beatrice for yes to Pierre?

Double ceremony, one in the Principality of Monaco, his house Pierre Casiraghi, one of the Borromean Islands, owned by the family of her, Beatrice Borromeo. Double, triple, quadruple feast. Result, a caravan of high society guests that will be at stake from the French Riviera to the shores of Lake Maggiore for two challenging weekend of parties and receptions from Saturday, July 25.

The marriage of Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo does speak for days. Inevitable: their families have given membership in the last 30 years, gossip, gossip columns and above all a rich sequence of fairytale weddings. In particular those of the sisters Borromeno.

But with such a legacy to those who will really inspire Pierre and Bea for their wedding? Formal style in homage to the label of the Grimaldi Palace, where civil weddings are celebrated and sober Cavagnetu (picnic in the garden in Monegasque dialect) or Renaissance splendor under the coat of arms with three balls of the Borromeo? To these we should also styled Casiraghi: Carolina has given to his children one coops life certainly high, but low profile. From the choice of them grew up in Provence, far from the Palace.

Not to upset anyone the two young men have decided to double the party.
The former model, now a journalist, nephew of Marta Marzotto is the fifth and last child of Charles Borromeo, the last patriarch of one of the most historic and important families of the north: three sisters females, Lavinia, Isabella and Matilde and a son, Carlo. Four countesses tall, blond, thin and chilly-looking that made important marriages, then the sources of inspiration and advice to Beatrice certainly not lacking even if, on closer inspection, the marriages of his sisters Borromeo they all look alike.

Lavinia (now 38 years) inaugurated the trend by marrying John Elkann, then vice president of Fiat, September 4, 2004: religious ceremony on Isola Madre, receipt in the Hanging Gardens of Isola Bella. All the world of high finance Italian was invited. Berlusconi, then prime minister, arrived by helicopter with Gianni Letta. She had a real princess dress by Valentino with veil family (ça va sant say) and tiara grandmother. The witnesses were the brothers Beatrice and Charles, father of brothers only because Lavinia, Isabella and Matilde, Carlo Borromeo had them with Marion Zota, Bea and Charles with Paola Marzotto, daughter Marta, who blondes and ethereal Borromeo they love like a real grandmother and that, like a real grandmother, she oversaw suille good choices double of all four.

Wedding photocopy, a year later, those of Isabella, the eldest, with the tankers Ugo Brachetti Peretti: ivory gown by Valentino, veil family. Only after the ceremony on Isola Bella celebrated the Rocca d’Angera (also owned by the family). And at the Rocca materializes, July 30, the receipt grandest wedding of Pierre and Beatrice: the Rock, it will be closed to the public from July 30 to August 2.

The last Borromeo to get married in white Valentino, among the stone statues on Isola Bella was Matilde, in June 2011, his wife went to Antonius Von Furstenberg, prince of the royal family of Germany. Only variant script Borromeo, the bride was very pregnant.

The only one to come out of the male choir Carlo, penultimate in succession: hippe chic ceremony in Pantelleria, in a field overlooking the sea at sunset, with seating on hay and white shawls. Bucolic his yes to socialite Marta Ferri (daughter of photographer Fabrizio and Barbara Frua de Angeli) in July 2012.

For the Italian part of the festivities is to be expected therefore that the script somehow happen again equal to the sisters, given the choice of celebrating the rite on the lake, but perhaps Isolino di San Giovanni, more secluded location than the majestic Island Beautiful.

weddings-grimaldi Certainly, the part of Monaco’s wedding will be the most simple: everything except the evening party at Jimmy’z, will take place in the Palace closed, as was the case for the parents of Pierre, Carolina and Stefano Casiraghi and Andrea and Tatiana Santo Domingo. One can be sure, perhaps, the marriage to which that of Pierre and Bea will resemble less, at least as atmosphere, to Uncle Albert Charlene Wittstock: cast too, too many royal families invited, bride too rigid.

Beatrice, you know, is quite another kind. Maybe more like the sister Tatiana Santo Domingo, that the yes with Andrea Casiraghi is presented in civil saldali thong Palace. And then he wanted a second episode, religious, indeed, enchanted, under the snow in Gstaad, hooded in a Valentino dress, in cascades of flowers and crystals. Chic, but not easy.

Even Pierre, despite being the son of a Grimaldi, during his childhood he spent much time in the countryside of Provence rather than the Rocher. He and the Borromeo, basically mean part of the jet set, but with the royal families have little to disappear. And then it was not just Beatrice to have declared in an interview: “The aristocracy is just crap anachronistic”?
