Of Raffaele Zampieri, 71, from Rivoli, nothing is known since Monday 18 October 2021, the day he went out for a walk in the mountains in Briançon where he has a holiday home. Today, Sunday 24 October, Raffaele Zampieri’s friends and family are on site for research. In total they are just over 20 people.
The first alarm was triggered in the night between Monday and Tuesday and the searches immediately began which on Wednesday 20 October were suspended by the French authorities who, on the case, opened an investigation: the investigators believe that it could be an accident in the mountains . On Monday Raffaele Zampieri had left his car on the Cervières road, near the Fontchristianne descent, and from here he would have left for the mountain walk. In this area, for two days, the Briançon police station and the Peloton de Gendarmerie de Haute Montagne carried out research both by land and by flying over the area with a helicopter.
