Italy and the Arctic

 

Italy and the Arctic

"The appeal of the polar regions for those who have been there once is irresistible.
That sense of absolute freedom of the spirit, that relinquishing care for material things except those that are indispensable for survival, that shrinking value of ideas, principles, feelings, so important and essential in the civilized world. (...)
The human law that no longer exists and gives way to that of nature. (...)
That immense solitude where everyone feels king over himself. All this, once it has been experienced, can no longer be forgotten and exerts a fascination which is impossible to resist."
Umberto Nobile
