The author analyses suicide and alcoholism in Alpine area. These phenomena are considered by Arnoldi as symptoms of unease and discomfort. The authors suggests that these phenomena shoud be studied taking into account the contradictions that concern mountain setting. Notably, Arnoldi underlines the ambiguities linked to the process of modernisation which contributes to the growth of anomy: on one hand the urbanisation that destroys the environment, on the other hand the process of social construction of traditions of real mountains.
