The Museo Ladin de Fascia tells the story of a living community with its own language and a fascinating history.
A modern, innovative museum which presents an overview of the entire history of Val di Fassa: from prehistory to production activities, from the Great War to the advent of mountaineering and mass tourism, from its institutions to its civil and religious ceremonies, and from legends to popular traditions. Along the way, visitors can check out also 17 interactive displays with over 70 short films.
Try out the exclusive virtual reality game "Pigui Experience". Wearing the special visor, you will be catapulted back in time, to 2,400 years ago, when the ancient Reti tribes settled in the valley and whose traces were found near Mazzin, on the "Doss dei Pigui". Save the people of the goddess Reitia from Oblivion by completing all assigned missions! Online reservation required. Duration approx. 15 minutes; children from 9 years.
In the last room of the museum, we take you to the cinema: 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.
In addition to the main building and the specialistic library of the Cultural Institute - held in the ancient Tobià de la Pieif, a treasure trove of documents and publications - the museum has 5 local branches in the valley, thanks to renovated buildings of ethnographic and cultural interest. These include "La Sia" a Penìa (Venetian sawmill), "L Stònt" a Campitello (a shooting hut), "L Malghier" a Pera (a dairy), "L Molin de Pèzol" a Pera (a watermill) and "L Segat" a Pozza (a forestry).
During the summer the Museum organises activities, guided visits and recreational-cultural initiatives for children and adults. The area is accessible to disabled people.
