"Into the Legend" is a short film that tells the story of a man determined to achieve the goal of enter the legend by a solo ascent on an icefall. In the succession of the scenes we see him engaging in intense training, as he prepares to face the huge challenge that awaits him.

During his journey, that is in space but also within himself, the man spends the nights in a tent, immersed in unspoiled nature that welcomes and amplifies his tacit reflection on life and his goals. These are intense moments of solitude, with only the company of his loyal four-legged friend, his dog, who accompanies him wherever he goes.

Going beyond the challenge and the idea of a fame to be conquered, the man realizes that enter the legend is only a part of the real reward, that is the journey itself. He may feel that the moments spent with his dog and the pure experience of nature are the real treasures of life.

"Into the Legend" is a tribute to willpower and perseverance, the beauty of nature that surrounds us, and the value of friendship that elevates us.

Giuliano Radici was born in Brescia, Italy, in 1957.

At one time he called himself a photographer, today he feels like a “storyteller”. Through photography and editing he gives voice to his experiences, creating intense and creative visual journeys. He has worked in fashion and advertising as well as on indisputably expressive and powerful photojournalism projects.

Multiple portfolios published in magazines like “Zoom International”, “Gente di Fotografia”, and “ Private”, as well as shoots for various fashion magazines, have made him known to the general public .

He has published photography books that have been met with international acclaim: “Parigi” in 1997, “A Remya mia figlia Indiana dell’India” in 1998, “Cambodia” in 2002, “Che il passo lento dell’elefante ti porti lontano” in 2005, “Simple Objects” in 2007, “Pakistan” in January of 2008, and “Patria e onore”, a book on Amerigo Vespucci published for the Italian Navy in 2011.

In 2009 his artistic and human journey came together in 7milamiglialontano, a non-profit association which he conceived and of which he is the president. Here his art is expressed through travel and through solidarity-based objectives. Books published: “Religion” in 2009 “Est, Est, Est” in 2012, “Around the World” in 2015, “Ritorno al Centro” in 2017, and “5.1 H2oPlanet Europa” in 2019.

His photographs are part of various public and private collections, including those of MAM (Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro) and the “Fotokunst” Museum in Denmark.

Roberto Radici was born in 1962 and attended the Caravaggio Art School and the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. His understanding that art is an integral and fundamental component of his life has fuelled his constant study of and experimentation with artistic expression.

In particular, he has studied the fresco technique, drawing on the work of past masters in order to develop his own personal and powerful style.

His contemporary art installations have attracted the attention of gallery owners and museums, leading to exhibits of his work in prestigious contexts both at home and abroad: the Multimedia Gallery in Brescia, the Spazio Bal Gallery in Milan, Palazzo Benamati in Maderno (BS), the Im Kurhaus Gallery in Germany, the Einzigart Gallery in New York, and Loggia Alexandra in Berlin.
