In the second episode of the new season of “Sapiens”, tomorrow at 9.45 pm on Rai3, we will go with Mario Tozzi to the slopes of the Re di Pietra, the Monviso in Piedmont, to discover how the Alps are, in the final analysis, the backdrop of ancient oceans who have traveled tens of kilometers before getting into place, while with exciting videos, we will retrace the little-known story of the conquest of the highest and most iconic mountain in the world, Mount Everest. Looking at the continents from above, all appear marked by long and marked scars, those natural boundaries, boundaries of rock that with their heights can change the climate, modifying the path of the air currents. In ancient times, the mountains housed the gods, were sacred and inspired fear and awe, while, over the centuries, they have become a territory of discovery and challenge. The desire to go higher and higher, overcoming natural limits, has characterized and still characterizes the relationship between men and mountains. Furthermore, human-caused climate change also negatively affects their balance: overheating is one of the main causes of landslides and melting of glaciers, and increases the risk of losing precious resources for the life of Sapiens.
