Culture and lifestyle in the Dolomites
The cultural guide Culturonda® Dolomythos provides a new perspective of the Dolomites. It provides insight into the mountains, the people who inhabit them, their history and stories. The project embraces the South Tyrolean area of the Dolomites both geographically and thematically, bundling up twelve major topics: geology, the phenomenon of alpenglow, the minnesinger Oswald von Wolkenstein, legends and myths, trade routes, mountaineering, the beginnings of tourism, the Dolomite front in World War One, the Ladin language, water, natural monuments and the four nature reserves in the Dolomites.
Culturonda® Dolomythos has singled out three interesting aspects of each of the twelve topics for special emphasis, for example you will understand the rock's composition of the Dolomites along the ‘Geologist’s footpath’ on the Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm, while the chapter on Ladin sagas delves into the legend of the ‘Parliament of the Marmots’.
