David Casartelli – Photographer

When David Casartelli lays his eyes on the landscapes of the region, he inspires us. He loves to take to the peaks of the Giffre Mountains to offer us a superb perspective of the landscapes that are granted eternal life in his photographic works of art. The artist expertly captures the essence of the natural environment and shares his original take on the valley with us.

We have dedicated this page to him, through the seasons he will take you on a journey through the Giffre Mountains!

For those who are not lucky enough to come to the Giffre Mountains or who are not even aware of their existence
