Abstract:The studies in this book on the Rwenzori region, on the border of Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, span a wide historical period, ranging from the precolonial past to contemporary postcolonial transformations. The book was written on the occasion of the centenary celebration of the Abruzzi expedition to the Rwenzori mountains in 1906. The papers brought together were first presented at two conferences, one in Turin, the other in Kampala. They deal with a variety of topics, but most of them explore the relationship between the specific charateristics of this mountain territory on the one hand, and the dynamics of culture and identity formation on the other.
