Agostino Gazzera,"Gustin", in the 50s' was a Fiat worker, son of the Italian proletariat left battered by World War but full of hope for the future. A young "Gustin", including the shift in the foundry and one in the second workshop where he rounded off his salary, he imagines to walk the roads open to mountain climbers legendary Cassin, Boccalatte and Gervasutti.
He puts on an old and rusty bicycle to reach the valleys of the mountains of Piedmont who has only ever seen from Turin through the windows of Fiat.
When the curiosity begins to become necessary, he decide to start up the streets of climbing with a rope of hemp and a few nails done at home.
"Gustin" has won all its peaks, from Monviso to the Cervino up "at the University of alpinism", Mont Blanc, but he never forget the difficult world from which he came.
