Wikipedia:
Julius Kugy (19 July 1858 — 5 February 1944) was an Austrian - Italian mountaineer and writer of Slovene origin. He wrote mostly in German. He is renowned for his travelogues from the Julian Alps, in which he reflected on the relationship between man, nature, and culture. During all his life, he opposed competing nationalist ideologies in the northern Adriatic area, insisting on the need of peaceful co-existence among Slavic, Italian and German peoples.

Julius Kugy was born in Gorizia, then part of the Austrian Empire (now in Italy) to Slovene parents. His father was a Carinthian Slovene whose original surname was Kogej. His mother was the daughter of the Slovene poet Jovan Vesel Koseski. Kugy was educated in a multi-lingual environment. From an early age he was fluent in the four major languages of his native Gorizia and Gradisca region: Slovene, Italian, German and Friulian. During his childhood he would spend the summers in his father's native village of Lipa near Arnoldstein in Carinthia's Gail Valley, where he developed his interest in nature and mountains.

Julius attended the German language secondary school in Trieste and continued his studies at the University of Vienna, graduating in law in 1882. Upon returning to Trieste, he took over the management of the import-export company Pfeifer & Kugy, co-founded by his father.

He explored large portions of the Eastern Alps, dedicating most of his mountaineering career to climbing in the Julian Alps,where he discovered and marked more than 50 new routes. Local guides helped him climb many a previously unconquered peak in the Julian Alps:he became famous for climbing Škrlatica and Jôf di Montasio.

During the World War II, Kugy rescued several Slovene alpine climbers from the Dachau concentration camp, and collaborated with the Slovene partisan underground resistance in Trieste. He died in Trieste in 1944. He is buried in the central city cemetery.

Together with Henrik Tuma, Kugy is considered the father of modern mountaineering in the Julian Alps. He wrote several books based on his experiences, in which he expressed his humanist ideals and the love for nature. His books were very influential and created a specific genre of mountaineering literature within Slovene literature. His neo-Romantic style, which merged scientific and naturalist descriptions of nature and popular customs with a highly personalized reflections, influenced several important authors, mostly from the Slovenian Littoral. Among those influenced by Kugy's poetic and reflective mountaineering travelogues were Klement Jug, Vladimir Bartol, Igor Škamperle and Dušan Jelincic. He was also influential in some Italian-speaking circles of Trieste. Among his admirors were the writers Giani Stuparich, Claudio Magris, Livio Isaak Sirovich, Marco Albino Ferrari and Paolo Rumiz.
