Industria Cartaria Pieretti supported the endeavour of Andrea Lanfri, an athlete and Paralympic mountaineer from Lucca who made his dream come true: to reach the top of the world with prostheses.
ICP, together with other companies in the area, bet on this new challenge and reached the summit of Everest with Andrea Lanfri.
In 2015, due to fulminant meningitis with meningococcal sepsis, Lanfri underwent the amputation of both legs and seven fingers. Despite this, the athlete from Lucca never lost heart and made his life an example of tenacity and courage for all.
The last challenge was the most important one: to reach 8848 meters of the highest peak in the world. Challenge won by Andrea on 13th May, around 1am (Italy time). An exceptional sporting feat, in which he was accompanied by his friend and mountain guide Luca Montanari.
This was much more than just a sport challenge: it was making a dream come true, setting goals and going beyond your limits.
Well done Andrea!
