Merry Christmas and happy New Year

Dear National Presidents of IFMS,

dear friends,

a kindly welcome to you all.

Let me thank you once again for the support you have given to me during this year of my mandate as Secretary General of IFMS.

Another year is closing and it is time to take stock. My thanks goes to those who have worked together to keep this Federation alive. We have had an example of this solidarity and brotherhood during last Congress in Polanica Zdrój.

On the contrary they are sound convictions according to Italian alpines, not for the nostalgia due to age but because of the conviction that a solid house rests on a sturdy foundation.
