The Italian Embassy in Hanoi in cooperation with the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology has brought to Viet Nam the photographic exhibition “Italian Routes. Mountains, mountaineering, climate change", a project by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation curated by photographer Fabiano Ventura in cooperation with the no-profit association Macromicro.

The aim of the exhibition, based on the outstanding work of photographer and environmentalist Fabiano Ventura, is to show to an international audience the great Italian tradition linked to mountain culture, the relevance of mountaineering as a means of respecting and understanding the mountain habitat, and the devastating impact of climate change on our precious ecosystem and bio diversity. The initiative contributes to the raising of public awareness in the field of environment and climate change heading to the COP-26 conference co-chaired by the United Kingdom and Italy at the end of 2021 in Glasgow.

On this occasion, Italian Routes will be accompanied by a parallel project: "Landscapes of Vietnam - Ecological diversity, new climate pattern, new discovery", with artworks by three prominent local photographers (Hoang The Nhiem, Hoang Giang Hai and Tran Dang Dang Khoa) in order to present the complementarity of Italian and Vietnamese mountain landscapes.
