On 29th October 2018, the storm "Vaia" devastated about 42.500 hectars of forests (equal to about 70 000 soccer fields) between the Prealpi Venete and the Dolmites, mowing doen or damaging beyond repair about 15 million trees. Let's assess the situation after three years with a special event, by telling about the developements of the wood retrieval and about the numerous, valuable initiatives that have been born in the area. At the same time, the intention of this initiative is to raise awareness among inhabitants and guests on topics like the relationship between the nature and the man and like the sustainability, as well as to reflect together upon the contemporary challenges and the importance of a communal cultural identity.
