TALE: in a very poetic way, the story of Samivel tells the first ascent of the Matterhorn seen through the eyes of a young jackdaw who lived with his family in the east face of the mountain, remained virgin until now. A magnificent ode to the mountain, but also a metaphor on the greed of the human to conquer Nature for his ego.
