Leonardo Emilio Comici

Wooden statue dedicated to Emilio Comici, carved by the gardenese Tita Demetz in the 90s.

In Selva Gardena
a bronze model has been placed in front of the Campaccia climbing wall, where Emilio Comici lost his life in a banal accident.
Leonardo Emilio Comici (Trieste, February 21, 1901 - Selva di Val Gardena, October 19, 1940) was an Italian climber and speleologist. He accomplished many climbs in the eastern Alps, in particular in the Dolomites (opening approximately 200 new routes) and the Julian Alps.
