World Heritage still the protagonist at the Trento Film Festival

The 71st edition of the Trento Film Festival (28 April – 7 May 2023) will once again see the Dolomites as protagonists, not only of the works competing for the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Special Award, but also of some initiatives that have arisen from the long-standing collaboration between the Trento Film Festival and the UNESCO Dolomites Foundation.

The wonder of geology

Thursday 4 May at 5 p.m., in the conference room at the MUSE, Museum director and International Council of Museums (Icom Italia) president Michele Lanzinger, geologist Piero Gianolla (full professor at the University of Ferrara) and geologist Vajolet Masé (Adamello Brenta Natural Park Global Geopark) will discuss the past, present and future of our planet, starting with the geology of the Dolomites. This journey through time can now also be facilitated by the new tool created by the UNESCO Dolomites Foundation – the digital “Dolomites World Heritage Geotrail” portal. The portal is the result of teamwork that has united all the provinces of the Dolomites and will be available to the public on 4 May.

Caution in the mountains and “sentinel” mountain huts

The “Caution in the mountains” project, a collaboration between the Trentino Mountain Hut Managers Association, the UNESCO Dolomites Foundation, the S.A.T. (Tridentine Alpine Society), Trentino Marketing, the Alpine Rescue and the Trentino Alpine Guides, which began last summer, will be the focus of the event on 2 May at 5 p.m. at Palazzo Roccabruna. The speakers will be Roberta Silva (Chairperson of the Trentino Mountain Hut Managers Association), Walter Cainelli (Chairperson of Trentino Alpine and Speleological Rescue), Chiara De Pol (Vice Head of Brand and Communication Trentino Marketing), Gianni Canale (College of Alpine Guides – Mountaineering Instructors of the Province of Trento), Mara Nemela (Director of the UNESCO Dolomites Foundation) and Mario Fiorentini (Chairperson of the Veneto Mountain Hut Managers Association).
