Worth seeing places - the Val di Fassa

Alba di Canazei - Campitello - Canazei - Mazzin - Moena - Passo San Pellegrino - Penia in Val di Fassa - Pera in Val di Fassa - Pozza in Val di Fassa - Soraga - Vigo in Val di Fassa



Reflecting on identity and memory constitutes one of the keys to this first part of the third millennium, taken as it is between globalisation and loss of identity, local closures and fundamentalist impulses. Vigo di Fassa's Ladin Cultural Institute, a reputable cultural institute which has been working for a quarter of a century for the evaluation of the language and culture of this ancient Dolomite people, has welcomed the discussion and has given a new exhibition home to its own collection of Alpine ethnography. The museum is also linked to the name of Milo Manara, an undisputed master of the illustration of feminine beauty. On display there are works chosen by the artist showing figures from Fassa mythology which have been passed down by word of mouth, the witches and elves. The display features interactive, multimedia technology which allows you, for example, to "try your hand visually" at the various stages of an agricultural operation, "take part in" the complex rituals which used to surround Ladin weddings and "share" in the often worrying debauchery of the Fassa carnival and so on.

Worth seeing places in Val di Fassa:

Torre di Pozza
Is nowadays in private, in former times however family served a noble Tiroler as summer residence. The tower was the only fortification in the valley, developed on a square sketch with solid walls, apart from the "disappeared tower Torre di Vigo", seat of the Vikars.

The district of Moena and the Alpe di Lusia, includes part of the Paneveggio Nature Park, a protected Dolomite mountain ecosystem area, which also has interesting visitor centres and a reserve where in particular deer numbers document the Alpine environment.
The Saint Barbara church. The little church of S. Barbara ; it was built by the Valparola's miners that worked the minerals extracted form the Monte Pore. The Crucifixion painted on the outside wall and the many paintings on the inside walls are of particular historic and artistic value.
The first references to a church in Corvara, dedicated to Saint Catherine, are to be found in documents dating from 1347. The church in its present form was consecrated on the 26th of August 1452 and was the subject of various restoration projects, in 1864, 1910 and 1967. In this church of more modest dimensions the light penetrates through the windows and the panes to the choir and illuminates an ambience featuring a multitude of Saints. Under a certain light the Saints are brought to the fore, under another they take on a different role, then once more to be brought to the fore.
Mount Lagazuoi was a theatre of operations during the 1st World War and the Italian Alpine troops were lined up against the Austrians troops. The Italian positions on the ledges underneath the peak of the mountain were in effect for two years a key point of the first order on the Dolomite front
