The mountain guide Luigi Felicetti narrates the most significant vicissitudes on the Queen of the Dolomites. The First World War left a profound mark on the land and the recent history of the valley. It was precisely on these mountains of Fassa that the Italian-Austrian frontline was drawn, with the formation on Marmolada glacier of a military fort below zero degrees, the famous "Ice City", and in the San Pellegrino area of numerous trenches, still visible today. In Italian language.
