Dolomites

“Come, have a close look at this wonder, without a doubt one of the most beautiful, powerful and astonishing gifts from our planet… Are they rocks or clouds? Are they true or maybe a dream?” Dino Buzzati, The Glass Mountains, 1956

The Dolomites are considered as one of the finest mountain scenery, called Dolomite Landscape, marked by distinctive and unique characters, which have an extraordinary aesthetic significance: we find a wide variety of steep rock formations, such as needles, towers, spires, pinnacles, interrupted by the horizontal shapes, like ledges, tablelands and crags; we see the green and gentle angled valleys clashing surprisingly with the awesome vertical rise of the mighty peaks.

Also called "Pale Mountains" in reason of the impressive white bright colour which they assume under the moonlight, the Dolomites are regarded as an exceptional example representing the history of the transformation of the primary carbonatic platform into an alpine range.

You won't have another avalanche like the one that buried the hotel.

May the sunshine always be at your back, instead of in your face !!

Thanks a lot, Larry, I like very much the words you found!
The hotel was buried by the fury of the elements, the earthquake has moved an avalanche! In these areas of central Italy is difficult to have so much snow... What to say? It's been so!
On the other hand in the North we are without rain and snow!
Ciao, grazie! Silvia
