Exploration Maestros: Tale of Two Italians

Exploration think-a-likes and look-a-likes

One is an Italian renaissance explorer, scaling winter summits and flying rescue missions across the Himalayan range; another was an Italian inventor, building the airship that would take the third character – a Norwegian mastermind and Antarctica pioneer – to the North Pole.

Love of deep cold, exploration and experimental aircrafts unite Simone Moro, Umberto Nobile and Roald Amundsen.

The two Italians may even share a bit more; look at the striking resemblance between them in pictures.
