Cultural mountain festival with meetings, walks, exhibitions and movies

Madonna di Campiglio


The nobility of the Heights

The mountain and its heights/heighnesses: this is the subject of the cultural mountain festival Mistero dei Monti that, fourteenth years after, comes back from 6 to 20 August 2016.
Every year one subject, every year many important personalities and experiences weaving together and leaving traces.
The nobility of thought inside the apparent static nature of the mountain is the central theme of the cultural meetings, which cross different disciplines and create a multicolor mosaic.
“Yours heights/heighnesses”, or rather the nobility of the different heights, is the topic of 2016: in homage to the physical heights and the heights of thought, of the study and experience that have contributed to the development of civilization.
“Her heighness the Earth” is one of the topic that the important guests of the edition 2016 will deal with: an appropriate consideration about the Mother Earth, aching for the weight of our life system.
At the end of July, the “Her heighness the Wood” exhibition preview will be launched: the great trees between symbolism and myth, an exhibition promoted together with the Adamello Brenta Nature Park and the Regole of Spinale e Manez, that expresses the value of our alpine  landscape starting from the trees. The trees as patriarchs of nature and witnesses of the environmental value of the earth, with a cultural and symbolic meaning written in all traditions of the people of the world.
“Her heighness the Art”, described by the point of view of the masters that spoke about art and its changing.
Meetings, walks, exhibitions and movies characterized the Festival, useful for the contemporary walkers. What others  heighnesses will be revealed?
An air of mystery is our travel companion! We are waiting for you!

The Festival Mistero dei Monti is promoted by the Madonna di Campiglio Pinzolo Val Rendena Tourism Board, together with the Autonomous Province of Trento. The project is conceived and developed by Roberta Bonazza and Giacomo Bonazza.
