Local Fun Fact

Culture Local Fun Fact

You may not know that only in a few woods of Val Comelico, Val di Fiemme and Tarvisio grows the Picea excelsa fissilis, the so-called “resonance fir”. A very rare species, it is used by luthiers all over the world to build the front of the sound box of many stringed instruments. The origin of the name “resonance” is to be found in the fact that in ancient times, when forest roads did not exist, the trunks were brought down to the valley by sliding them in channels properly called “risine” built in trunks and turned in the direction of maximum slope. During the journey, the logs, hitting the banks of the rice fields, emitted such vibrations that the woodcutters could tell whether the wood “sang” or made a dry and deaf sound that showed its different nature even though it was always precious wood but not specific resonance.

In the footsteps of the Pope

Activities In the footsteps of the Pope

Pope Wojtyla (John Paul II) was a great mountain man and loved Comelico very much. He was a guest of the Lunelli and Berti refuges and celebrated many masses at high altitude. he certainly left a legacy in this area. You can walk in his footsteps through the circuit “The Paths of the Pope”.


Activities "Maskarada"

Do not miss the event that brings together all the towns of Comelico: the “Maskarada”, the carnival that has a centuries-old tradition in this valley. Although the Council of Trento tried to suppress this festival, the carnival has always resisted and is a very heartfelt event: parties, parades, songs and dances accompany the typical masks of this area.
