Maria Antonia Sironi is a geologist, writer, and translator. In her youth she took part in many mountaineering expeditions to different parts of the world. Having ventured out to the Hindu Kush on the border of the mythic Oddyiana Land, she is most deeply bound to the mountains of Tibet. For many years she lived with the local population. Sironi is co-founder and president of Eco Himal ONLUS, a small NGO dedicated to safeguarding Tibetan culture and landscape. Sironi has published several books about Tibet, its mountains and its people. Among them are The Story of the White Crystal, finalist at Banff Mountain Festival 1996), and Tibet, l'Altra Metà del Cielo, (winner of the Mazzotti Gambrinus Prize 2003). Kurt Diemberger is one of the world's great climbers, making first ascents of Broad Peak and Dhaulagiri, and climbed 4 other 8000 m peaks including Everest and K2.
