La Gran Vera

The important exhibition, promoted by the Municipality of Moena, the Ladin Cultural Institute and the cultural-historic association "Sul fronte dei ricordi", and superintended by Michele Simonetti Federspiel and Mauro Caimi, (honorary keepers of the Ladin Museum), is a fortune of documents, pictures, films, recordings, findings, military uniforms and relics made of almost one thousand pieces in total, original from private collections and from the "Museo Ladin de Fascia" itself. The exhibition is divided in four permanent sections:

  • "Galizia 1914" (Galitia 1914). The military events in Galitia (historic region of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, nowadays divided between the South-Western Poland and the Western Ukraine) can be experienced through the works by the Austrian "War painter", the "Kriegsmaler". The press office chief of the Austrian Higher Command, Max Ritter Von Hoen, had understood that Art could have an important role in the conflict. The life conditions and the experience of the battle where assuming new and unknown dimensions: the fact of illustrating them, could have meant to strengthen the patriotism and the spirit of sacrifice of the Country. So, a "Kunstgruppe" (art group) was founded, and its members received the status of war painters and sculptors. Equipped with special passes to access the front, these artists in uniform began to produce a consistent number of works, destined to be exposed in the towns of the Empire.
  • "La trincea" (The trench), accurate reconstructions of walkways, posts, caves and dioramas that represent the real life in the trench and bring back the atmosphere of that period. Children and adults have the possibility to touch the objects, wear the helmets, listen to sounds and memories. The focus of the section is the diorama of an assault at high altitude, made even more realistic by the maxi-projection of war scenes in the background.
  • "Dolomiti 1915" (Dolomites 1915). The Dolomites are still a unique and incredible battlefield which has been mostly rebuilt and open to visits: "Alta Via Bepi Zac", "Federspiel", "Fango", "Cima Bocche", "Lagorai", are unique jewels in Europe. These places have brought back extraordinary memories of the tragic epopee that, for more than two years, has seen the enemy armies fighting at altitude. In the room dedicated to the Great War on the frontline in the Dolomites there are around twenty original uniforms, both Austrian and Italian, enlightened in a scenic way, near thematic "windows" containing evidences of the war in the mountains, illustrating labels with the memories of the soldiers, pictures of that age and texts about events and frontline and backline situations. In the same room, it is possible to enter the "exhibition shop", with several objects and a wide exposition of books and publications, useful for those who want to better analyse the case.
  • "Guerra alla Guerra!" (War to the War!). The big balcony over the theatre foyer hosts a special section on the obscenity of the war, as is represented by the rough original pictures collected by Ernst Friedrich.


Every summer, the exhibition is enriched by new temporary thematic sections.

Follow-up. "Strada Riccardo Löwy" is one of the main streets of Moena. But why does it bear this name? Löwy (1886-1944) was an Austrian officer of Jewish origins who had directed the fortification works in Moena and on San Pellegrino Pass, recruiting several native young men who were spared the transfer to the fronts in Galitia and in the Carpatians. Löwy went back to Moena with his wife after that Austria had been annexed to Germany, but he was deported to Auschwitz in 1944, and there he died, unfortunately.
