Luigi Amedeo of Savoy, Duke of the Abruzzi
“The Snows of the Nile. Being an Account of the Exploration of the Peaks, Passes, and Glaciers of Ruwenzori.”
In 1906, the Duke of the Abruzzi, together with Vittorio Sella and others, set out to explore and climb the mountains of the Ruwenzori in today’s Uganda, bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo. His team successfully summited many of the peaks in the mountain range. Sella captured photographs not only of the mountains but also the local people and flora. It would be 21 years before climbers stood on these peaks again.
