Verso L’alto is Italian for “To the heights”. Blessed Pier Giorgio wrote these words himself on the back of the photo which was taken by a fellow climber on June 7, 1925. This was his last ascent before he would die a month later. It has since become a famous motto that remembers a man who had his eyes locked on the heights of heaven.
