Biography

Enrico Silvestri was the leading officer of the Italian military ski patrol in 1928 and 1936. While the team finished fourth in 1928, they won this demonstration event at the 1936 Winter Olympics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. In 1934 he joined the newly founded Scuola Militare di Alpinismo (Alpine Military School). One year later, he won the Trofeo Mezzalama, a prestigious high altitude ski mountaineering competition in Italy, together with his teammates Carlo Ronc und Attilio Chenoz. Before he joined the army, Silvestri studied law in Torino. Towards the end of World War II, Silvestri, now in the rank of lieutenant colonel, served in the Division Garibaldi, a partisan unit of the Italian resistance movement.
