Water, stone and dizziness …
Not only this, but much more can offer the ravines, primordial worlds hidden in the most remote places of the Apennines. Here the genius of nature has created essential, perfect forms, using the chisel of water and ice to amaze man of all times with the promise of amazing visions. And so it is: blades of light that penetrate the half-light of a gorge hit the nebulized water of the waterfall, magically lighting up the seven colors of the rainbow con ﬁ ned at the bottom of precipitous walls. Visions that last moments, situations that are sometimes unrepeatable, moments that count for the rest of life, fully paying for what one has already lived.
Pino Antonini, explorer of caves and ravines for passion, was among the first in Italy in the pioneering phase of research and discovery of gorges and waterfalls and has to his credit numerous explorations and repetitions of itineraries of considerable difficulty, in the Apennines and the Alps. .
Speleo-canyon guide, he is registered in the professional register with the qualification of instructor for guide courses and deals with training and accompaniment at all levels in canyoning-canyoning and speleology.
He has been an active member of the canyon technical commission of the National Alpine and Speleological Rescue Corps (CNSAS) since its establishment, and has contributed significantly to the development of progression and rescue techniques. He directed the first national canyoning courses on behalf of the national caving school and participates, from the very beginning, in the national stages for CNSAS rescue technicians as a trainer.
