MICHELE FREPPAZ is a pedologist and snow scientist with a PhD awarded in 2001 at the University of Torino. He is Associate professor at the Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences Department of the University of Torino. Among his present-day teaching activities: mountain soils, snow ecology and principles of alpine meteorology, soil survey laboratory, prevention of soil erosion, landslides and snow avalanches, applied pedology. His research focuses on the genesis and functioning of mountain soils with a special interest for the processes at the snow/soil interface. Moreover, he works on the impacts of cryosphere degradation on soil and surface water properties. He has current and past research activities in many of the mountain ranges throughout the world, including the Rocky Mountains, the Andes and the Himalayas.
NEUNAU, artist name of Sergio Maggioni, in 2015 returns to live in Valle Camonica, where he comes from, and he founded the NEUNAU as artistic research project. This ancient name was found carved on a rock surface in the LOA area, an Iron Age sacred place of recent discovery. The project is carried out through an archaeological and musicological approach to the sound research. NEUNAU’s sound investigations develop from the smallest details conveyed by a sound source, capturing and studying these sounds, searching for their musical potentiality, with the aim to produce audio tracks and documentary clips, where the main character is the sound itself, used to tell its own story. In 2020 he created the research project “UN SUONO IN ESTINZIONE” which aims to monitor the implications of climate change on alpine glaciers through artistic and scientic exploration, in collaboration with universities, institutions and partners.

With more than a year’s delay we finally managed to release ‘MILES TO GO BEFORE I SLEEP 3’. Needless to say, the pandemic helped to make the process leading up to the completion of this release even slower. The great news about this publication is that Teo is not the only photographer! Bico took a series of portraits of the expedition participants and so his photos have been included within, making this the first collaborative fanzine in the series.
During the trip we filmed almost continuously with go-pro, handycam and phones, so we will also be releasing a testimonial video about the expedition (as when we walked the GR20), also signed by Bico.
For the event we also prepared some merchandise to celebrate the end of the year and the new headquarter that we have been preparing for some time now (more news about that soon!).
As always, we would like to thank NOMOIRE, which has been with us for many years now in printing this series of publications.
We would also like to thank the guys at Tarfu Studio, Dali, Luca and Silvia, who are very dear friends of ours and we are very happy to finally be able to do something together.
The fanzine will be available in the online shop from 21st December.
We hope to see you at the event,
