Vibram partners 150th anniversary of CAI

The CAI (Italian Alpine Club) celebrates its first 150 years , a century and a half of life and activities for the association founded in Turin in 1863 that "aims to promote mountaineering in all its manifestations, the knowledge and study of the mountains, especially the Italian ones, and the defense of their natural environment”. Vibram , which has always shared with the CAI both values and spirit, could not miss this important event; that’s why it will partner the celebrations of the CAI at a national level . Limited to the territory of Lombardy, Vibram®, founded by Vitale Bramani who was he himself a member of the Alpine Club , will be partner of the "La Lombardia e le Alpi" exhibition, featuring projections, images and precious documents, to be held at Milan’s Spazio Oberdan from May 17 to July 7, 2013 . Visitors will also have the chance to see a reproduction of the Dolomite boot (with Vibram® soles) which contributed to the conquest of K2 and many other historical boots powered by Vibram® , kindly provided by major footwear brands such as Scarpa and Zamberlan that have marked important milestones in the world of mountaineering. The great adventure of the mountain is waiting for all mountaineering enthusiasts to celebrate a historic route built in the sign of new challenges and discoveries.
