Beretta Ev-K2-CNR projekt na Mt. Everestu
For decades, researchers like the famous Italian explorer and geologist, Prof. Ardito Desio, struggled to carry out scientific endeavors in remote high altitude areas, dependent on precarious tents and unreliable generators. By the end of the late eighties, Prof. Desio, together with climber and businessman, Agostino da Polenza, with whom he had founded the Ev-K2-CNR Project, had decided a permanent high altitude laboratory in the Himalayas was the answer. What began with a brainstorming session and a series of informal sketches on scraps of paper would one day become the famed Pyramid laboratory.
