THE FORGOTTEN CLIFF

The everybody wall

Image

During the time that rock climbing was becoming popular and taking shape, on the edges of the Valle del Sarca in Trentino province, in the village of Dorsino at the feet of the Brenta Dolomites, a cliff was bolted and then abandoned.  This was a cliff that possessed all the aesthetic and scalability features to make it utterly unique. The Dolomiti Open Association was created to and has committed itself to reopening this cliff and restoring this "Mona Lisa" of climbing to rock climbers everywhere. Through the donations of over 400 people via a crowd funding campaign and local companies and associations, Dolomiti Open has collected over 20,000 Euro in 40 days, forming the groundwork to give new life to the Falesia Dimenticata (the Forgotten Cliff). details >>>

MUSE

The Science Museum of Trento

Image

Opened in 2013, MUSE is a dream that came true thanks to an investment in culture provided by the Autonomous Province of Trento. Within the museum, the public is the real star of the visit: multimedia exhibits, interactive games, first-person experimentations and an interweaving of culture with "doing" in a practical way – these are the tools with which to build your own vision of the world and to participate in the scientific debate on major local and global issues. The architectural building designed by Renzo Piano, constructed using eco- compatible criteria, represents significant added value: the profile of the building plays with references to the surrounding mountains, poised between empty and full spaces that add allure and value to the entire display. details >>>
