It seems that having reached the Pope Hut and not having found it, the comrades thought it was already down and took the Strada degli Scarubbi towards the valley. Once at the car, however, around 17.00, the man was not there, the cell phone turned off and the alarm went off. The last contact was at 12.00, when the hiker was on the phone with his wife, until the line fell. The research continued throughout the night and this morning, with the help of a helicopter.
Ravaglia, a retired doctor, had worked in the emergency room for many years, helping countless patients. Those who knew him remember "his profound humanity, professionalism and great empathy with patients".
