EverestHistory.com: Alberto Magliano


Alberto Magliano, 57 years old, boasts more than twenty years experience in climbing mountains and facing challenging expeditions all over the world.

His current mission is to become the second Italian alpinist (after Reinhold Messner) and the first non-professional Italian alpinist, to climb the ‘seven summits’ (including the disputed eighth summit Kosciuszko). Alberto has actually just returned from Australia where he successfully completed Mount Kosciuszko, the fifth summit of his quest (his first was Aconcagua in 1998, followed by Kilimanjaro in 1999, Everest in 2002 and Mount Vinson at the beginning of 2003). His aim is to complete all seven summits by the end of 2003. This is a particularly interesting challenge as Alberto is not a professional climber but a professional manager, a consultant with a vast experience in the business world, and it is for this reason that his challenge can be considered to be ‘unique’.

ALBERTO MAGLIANO

Born:    Trieste, Italy 24/11/1945

Resident:  Milano

Mountain residence:   Chiesa in Valmalenco, Central Alps

He has with one daughter - Silvia, 28 years old

Education:  Liceo-Ginnasio Cesare Beccaria - Milano.

Università degli Studi di Milano - graduated in Law

Various courses in economic, financial and legal subjects at company universities and cultural institutions

Languages spoken: French, German and English

Profession: Manager – consultant

Interests: "Obviously apart from alpinism and the mountains, I have various interests especially ancient history, international politics and classic literature. I like to think of my life as a exploratory expedition through varied lands, that is both in a literal and geographic sense and also on a cultural and mental level: without any limits."

Alpinism: "I started climbing late in life, after I turned 35, during a hectic period at work. Luckily I was fortunate to find a very talented instructor, Paolo Masa, an alpine guide and great climber, from whom I learnt a lot and am now great friends with."

"I could write a never ending list of the challenges that I have faced and the wonderful places that I have seen, but I will summarise very briefly the significant areas that I have explored: Mont Blanc, the Central Alps, the Dolomites, various areas of Italy, the USA and the Himalayas, and the great challenges that are especially important to me: Mont Blanc (Central Pillar of Freney) (Grand Pilier d'Angle, via Bonatti-Gobbi), Grand Capucin (Bonatti, Voyage selon Gulliver, Elixir d'Astaroth), Grandes Jorasses (Walker Spur), Aiguille du Fou (Classic Route, Les ailes du desir), Tour de Jorasses (Etoiles Filantes), Cima Grande di Lavaredo (Hasse-Brandler, Comici), Marmolada (Vinatzer, Messner, Gogna),  Civetta (Philipp-Flamm, Aste), El Capitan (Nose route), Half Dome (Regular north-west face). Not to mention the expeditions to reach my objective of the ‘seven summits’: Denali, Aconcagua – summit reached in 1998, Kilimanjaro in 1999, Everest in 2002 and Mount Vinson in 2002. The quest continues…….

How will the adventure end? I still don’t know, but I am certain that there is still a long way to go yet." Alberto
