As early as the 12th century, Val di Fiemme locals founded the self-governing “Magnifica Comunità della Val di Fiemme”, which still exists today and is responsible for the management of its large forest area. Valuable spruce wood is collected from the Paneveggio forest, also known as the “Foresta dei Violini”, which is then used for creating stringed instruments and piano soundboards.
