In this essay the author tries to analyse the connection between the symbolic dimension of Dino Buzzati's works and his beloved mountains, the Alps near Belluno. Viewing the climb of the peaks as an obstacle to overcome, the allegory itself of the supreme trial, Buzzati cannot but experience the mountains in first person, stressing the metaphysical meaning of climbing - as it's proved by many interviews - and this strict bond is reflected in his novels, short stories, articles and paintings.

Abstract

In this essay the author tries to analyse the connection between the symbolic dimension of Dino Buzzati's works and his beloved mountains, the Alps near Belluno. Viewing the climb of the peaks as an obstacle to overcome, the allegory itself of the supreme trial, Buzzati cannot but experience the mountains in first person, stressing the metaphysical meaning of climbing - as it's proved by many interviews - and this strict bond is reflected in his novels, short stories, articles and paintings.
