The Guardians of the Mountain: Custodians of a precious responsibility

When we talk about sustainability, we use Ladin terms such as 'Amur' (love), 'Teritore' (land), 'Insegnamënt' (education), 'Respet' (respect) and 'Ambiënt' (environment). These words do not need translation, but rather concrete, even if small actions.

It is from this deep sense of responsibility that ATIRA was born: a series of meetings and hikes that take place every Monday in our mountains to raise awareness among locals and visitors about issues crucial to sustainable territorial development and important for the community.


With ATIRA you become the guardian of the Dolomites: accompanied by our experts, you will not only learn fascinating facts about the mountains, but also how you can actively contribute to protecting our area.

It's an opportunity to connect with nature, the Dolomite nature, which is everyone's heritage and thus requires everyone's respect.

The Forest from the Mushroom's Perspective

The Forest from the Mushroom's Perspective

We are in the woods of La Val, places that transform with the changing seasons, harboring a diversity of fungi that extends beyond the well-known porcini and chanterelles. With Andrea, the journey becomes a sensory and cognitive adventure where each encountered mushroom serves as a pretext for stories of ecology, biology, and chemistry. Thus, learning transforms into an art: the art of identifying, collecting, and respecting mushrooms and of discovering the wonders of the fungal kingdom, thanks to their extraordinary medicinal properties that often have anticipated new frontiers in pharmaceutical research.

In the company of Gottfried, an experienced farmer who is a guardian of Ladin agricultural tradition, you walk through the meadows he tends to. And it is from here that a truly exhilarating and important experience begins. Read more ...
