Dawn over the Dolomites: Marco Paolini, Alberto Ziliotto
Special project: Dawn over the Dolomites - Concert at sunrise
Sounds of the Dolomites (I Suoni delle Dolomiti) is a unique high altitude music festival, which brings musicians from across the world to the most beautiful mountains of the Alps. The idea behind this initiative is simple and fascinating: combining the great passions for music and mountain, for art and environment, in a series of concerts in the sign of freedom and nature. The festival features internationally renowned artists. Organised by Trentino Marketing, in partnership with Val di Fassa Tourist Board.
The events of Sounds of the Dolomites, which usually take place in the afternoon, are joined by more suggestive ones, taking place at first light. They’re called "Dawn over the Dolomites", and allow to appreciate the unique beauty, the colours and the silence of our mountains at the beginning of the day.
Sounds of the Dolomites: special project "Dawn over the Dolomites". Marco Paolini, Alberto Ziliotto. Word. "Ma che ethos gavìo voi altri?". Pra Martin (Ciampedie), at 6.30 a.m.
Programme: that lingering moment when the first light of dawn touches the darkness of the night is filled with magical pathos. It’s the magic of one of the most special moments of the Sounds, the Dawn over the Dolomites (L’Alba delle Dolomiti). The stars grow dim to make way for the rays of the sun. It is a moment of oneness with nature that takes us back to basics and touches our inner being - a moment to be savoured in reverent silence. No rhetoric, nothing superfluous, just a moment of truth. These very same ingredients make up Marco Paolini's special project for L’Alba delle Dolomiti, which will be performed on the natural terrace of Pra Martin hut. A panoramic point that overlooks the Rosengarten’s peaks, which appear almost close enough to touch. Accompanied by Alberto Ziliotto on the guitar, Paolini's voice recalls Luigi Meneghello’s. From the pages of the book "Piccoli maestri" ("Little teachers"), we will hear fragments of lived lives, like that of the young student from Vicenza, who went up to the mountains to become a partisan, following the example of Antonio Giuriolo, a professor without a teaching post. "A personal, unpretentious story of resistance that speaks to every generation" reveals Paolini. This dedication, with which Paolini will greet the audience at first light, is mainly aimed "at young people, those who wish to listen".
