A novel about Pietro Caminada and his vision of a transalpine ship canal
Pietro Caminada (1862-1923), an Italian engineer with roots in Graubünden, caused a worldwide sensation in 1907, when he proposed a 600 km long waterway from Genoa to Lake Constance with the aim of making the Alps navigable. The Transalpine Ship Canal was to go under the Splügen Pass through a 15 km tunnel and then run over the Via Mala to Thusis.
Anita Siegfried's novel “Steigende Pegel” (Bilgerverlag 2016) interweaves fact and fiction and is a tribute to the great visionary, who was admired as much as he was ridiculed.
