The Arctic expedition led by Albertini aimed to search for and rescue any survivors of the airship “Italia.” During the journey, however, studies and research were also conducted in the fields of radiotelegraphy, medicine, and biology, in addition to a systematic visit and exploration of remote places. About 10,000 nautical miles and 700 km of movement on land and ice pack were covered.

«In noi rimarrà per sempre il peso dell’impresa:
ci inseguirà per tutta la vita la febbre di cercare
senza speranza ciò che non si trova,
l’ansia dello scrutare ciò che non esiste,
oltre la nebbia, oltre lo spazio, oltre noi stessi.
A mia madre.
Alle madri dei miei compagni»
(Gianni Albertini)
