Dolasila is a multimedia installation – event which promotes the Ladin legends of the Dolomites through music, literature and visual arts. The music and the voice of the soprano Susy Rottonara, the lyrics by Roland Verra and the art works (statues and paintings) by Rott (Lois Rottonara) lead the public through the fascinating atmosphere of Ladin legends. The title is referred to the the warrior princess Dolasila, protagonist of the legend of Fanes, the most important epic tale in the cultural tradition of Dolomites’ Ladin people. The scenery of the performance is made of video projections of paintings of scene by Rott, of parts from the experimental opera Fanes Poem Musical – The Musical Poem of the Dolomites and from the film The Reign of Fanes, both awarded with international prizes. It is explicit intention of the authors to present the legend in an artistic way from the point of view of the protagonist Dolasila, as a tribute to the ancient matriarchal tradition and central role of female figures in the ancient Ladin legendary tales.

Martina Crazzolara will speak to us about enogastronomy of the Dolomite Valleys of which we will taste some samples. The event has been organized in collaboration with the Accademia Italiana della Cucina – the Malta Delegation, and has been rendered possible thanks to the Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano together with the Associazione Culturale ‘Fanes’ of La Villa in Badia.
