Openining times: all year round
Description: just touch a screen and pictures will appear and a voice will tell you a wonderful story, of age-old snow, untouched peaks, never-ending meadows, ancient languages, hard working people and traditions unique in the world. The information about Val di Fassa, with avant-garde language and layout, is immediate and enthralling at the Ladin Museum, opened in 2001 in Vigo. The entire display counts on multimedia support with 17 information points with touchscreens, where visitors can access 74 short films than illustrate objects or aspects of the exhibition, with original sound and texts in many languages. The museum was designed by the architect Ettore Sottsass junior, furnished by the architects Alberto Winterle and Lorenzo Weber and enriched by the mythological Ladin figures of Milo Manara, in an exhibition area of 600 square metres. The visitor gets the chance to surround himself in Fassa life and understand the past and future. It starts with prehistory and goes through the various stages that have marked the main changes in local culture, until reaching mountaineering efforts and the mass tourism we know today. Particular attention is paid to the illustration of popular traditions, religious rites and institutional organisations. A new multimedia installation has been launched in June 2020 in the last room of the museum: a short costume movie which focus on an ancient tale, "The kicked out Vivana" ("La Vivana e l cian" in Ladin), shown on a wide screen, realised with the participation of local actors in collaboration with 490 Studio from Trento and directed by Filip Milenkovic.
The bookshop and museum shop are also interesting. During the summer the Museum organises activities and recreational-cultural initiatives for children and adults.
Notes: the area is accessible to disabled people.
