We asked Michele, our friend from Selva di Cadore, a mountain enthusiast and a member of a local archaeological group, why the territory of Selva is so interesting.
"I still remember the first time when, as a child, I climbed the Pelmo with my grandfather for the first time to see the footprints of dinosaurs: a unique emotion! While walking along the path that goes up from the Staulanza Pass, grandfather Antonio told me how hundreds of millions of years ago our Dolomites were a landscape similar to the tropical islands populated by dinosaurs.
Even today I like to climb up there to see the boulder with the big footprints, but above all to imagine that prehistoric landscape and the walk of the huge dinosaurs.
Another place I’m very fond of is the Vittorino Cazzetta museum. What is my favorite section? Obviously the section dedicated to dinosaur footprints and the one that tells the story of the Mondeval Man.
Imagine, it’s a hunter’s skeleton from 7500 years ago!
But I suggest you take the time to visit it calmly because the whole museum has objects, artifacts and technological installations that always fascinate everyone".
