  • Details
    Mountainous Turin, Italy is not only the recent home of the twentieth Winter Olympics, but also the early 1900's home of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. He was an avid mountaineer who often climbed with his friends. His charitable outreach towards others knew no bounds and aided the poor and ill relentlessly. His social status granted him greater freedom in aiding others who needed it most.

    On June 7, 1925, Pier Giorgio was photographed ascending a face in the Val di Lanzo. He is shown with both feet wedged into footholds and both hands gripping the rock above, poised to pull his powerful body upward.
    “Al piedi del monte”- “at the base of the mountain”- he is gazing toward the heavens. On the photograph, Pier Giorgio later wrote, “Verso l’alto,” which translates as “toward the top.”

    This became Pier Giorgio’s motto, and was as much about a look toward Heaven as it was a testament to a life of prayer and sense of social responsibility. The climb during which Pier Giorgio Frassati was photographed in the Val di Lanzo was his last. He died less than a month later, but in his short life he strove for the summit both physically and spiritually and is an example for our time, particularly for youth, of a grateful response to God’s universal call to sainthood: “Verso l’alto!”

    Pier Giorgio Frassati was beatified on May 20, 1990 by Pope John Paul II.

    Our outdoorsy homage to Pier Giorgio feels soft and lightweight, with the right amount of stretch. It's comfortable and flattering for both men and women.
