Message of Greetings from Club Alpino Italiano (CAI) Pisa

Our dear friend Francesco Greco left us on May 20th 2019.

When deciding which project to dedicate to Francesco an important path among those that are under the protection of CAI, Trail 181, was chosen.

Fundraising involved members of CAI Pisa and of the Seattle Subsection (USA). Other associations that had participated in the many initiatives of Francesco were also involved:  il circolo ARCI Cime Tempestose di Milano; il Bushwalking Club di Brisbane (Australia); e l’Over Forties Tramping Club di Christchurch (Nuova Zelanda).

The collection of funds reached the significant amount of € 3705.34, reflecting the great affection and esteem that many had for Francesco. This money will also enable other projects to be undertaken with those who have a passion for the mountains.

At present, given the fluidity of the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to determine a precise date for the work to be carried out, and therefore the inauguration of the new Trail 181 in September 2021 is uncertain. We will inform you of progress as soon as possible.
