During the four days, UNIMONT students will have the opportunity to perform and take part in various and numerous activities centering on the world of mountains.
A tour among unfinished works in a “Mountain in Difficulty”, the Terminillo Lab – a Joint School Laboratory Territorial Project – and an excursion to the top of the Terminillo with the guidance of the Italian Alpine Club and Alpine Rescue group. Educational and cultural visits to the Laghi Lungo Reservoir and Ripa Sottile, to the springs and to the Santa Susanna Mill, to the trout farm and the dairy farm, as well as a visit to the Ferrari Farm.
