The peaks – Nove (9), Dieci (10), Undici (11), Dodici (12) and Una (1) tower high above Sesto and together comprise the imposing craggy timepiece. You can tell the time from the location of the sun over the respective summits.

Opening: The walkable summit book

Opening: The walkable summit book

On 26. June 2019

The summit book is written proof of heroic deeds in the mountains. Each spectacular first climb told of courage, great ambition, mental strength and technical ability – not to mention a certain measure of madness. It is these very conquests that have been documented in the books high up in the mountains since the late 19th century and from 26.06.2019 Sesto will be bringing the summit books down into the valley, exhibiting them as an accessible art installation and enabling visitors to experience them in authentic fashion. Representatives from Sesto’s twin town, Zermatt, will be attending the grand opening..
