Costantini was 81, funeral on Monday. The friend Lagunaz: “When there was a risk, he and I would go down”

AGORDO. “He or I went down those walls to retrieve those who had crossed paths: Bepo had incredible strength, a lot of courage and great manual skills”.

Thus Berto Lagunaz, former head of the Agordo Alpine Rescue, remembers his friend Giuseppe “Bepo” Costantini who died on Friday at the age of 81 at the Agordo hospital where he had been hospitalized in the last few days.

Mountaineer, Gianni’s brother, who died in 1972 on the Ortles Cevedale, after whom the via ferrata in Moiazza is named, a member of the Rocciatori-Gir Group, “Bepo” was a discreet and silent type; but the role he had in the world of the Agordina mountains and not only was important.
