Exhibition “Il sacro nelle Dolomiti. Parole, simboli, riti” (The religious life of the Dolomites. Words, symbols, rituals)
28 November 2014 – 31 May 2015
The Seravella Ethnographic Museum, Belluno

The exhibition Il Sacro nelle Dolomiti (the Religious Life of the Dolomites) uses exhibits, images and words, to delve into the role of religion in the Dolomites.
The gradual break-up of the economy based on farming, pasturing and woodland resources, a process that began after the Second World War, has transformed a cultural heritage once largely shared and in which religion played a LEADING role.
The exhibition focuses on the manifestation of religious sentiment in the most important stages in this rural life-cycle.
