Catalogue of the exhibit dedicated to the two Castiglioni brothers, which traces their lives and mountaineering activities as a search for freedom and personal growth, lives which were tragically cut short with their deaths as anti-fascist resistors (Ettore in March 1944 and Bruno in April 1945). As alpinists, Ettore is the better known of the brothers due to his activity as a formidable alpine guide, his articles published in alpinist journals, and his routes opened on rock. Bruno on the other hand was better known as a man of science and a university professor. His passion for alpinism was not all-encompassing as it was for his brother. Nonetheless, the mountains brought them together and characterized their lives lived together. The mountains have strengthened their noble spirits through time.
