The town of Fornesighe is one of the most ancient areas of the Valley: until today it has preserved its architectural identity, mostly thanks to the absence, over time, of devastating fires, to the main road located outside the town and to the careful restoration. Visitors, in fact, can’t help being enchanted by its wooden and stone houses and amazed by its many fountains and the streets yet today accessible only on foot.


Positioned at the feet of Col Dur, overlooking the assembly of Tamer San Sebastiano and Spiz Mezdi, Fornesighe is one of the rare examples, still intact and original, of spontaneous ‘multi-family’ architecture.
The buildings, leaning against each other, impresses for the its massive final volume; actually it consists of many small units, each one equipped with a fire, and irregularly merged in a huge structure externally fitted out with wooden stairs and platforms harmonizing the facades and making them unique.
An extensive system of pathways, reduced to a pedestrian area, runs between the buildings, while commonly used courts interrupt the continuity of settlements.
The buildings, strongly differentiated in a frontal and vertical organization, create an homogeneous structure thanks to the constant inclination of the sloping roofs, the common orientation of the ridges, the predominant use of wood as a building material.


Veneto Rivers Holiday represents a project consistent with the Strategic Regional Tourism Plan Veneto, designed in synergy and complementarity with the objectives of the various OGD involved.
It invites and it is open to the active involvement of local governments.
