Marco Paolini, Alberto Ziliotto

Ma che ethos gavìo voialtri? - Special Project

Dawn in the Dolomites

That lingering moment when the first light of dawn touches the darkness of the night is filled with magical pathos. You can experience this magic at L’Alba delle Dolomiti (Dawn over the Dolomites), one of the most special moments during I Suoni delle Dolomiti (The Sounds of the Dolomites). 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 shown to the public on the natural terrace provided by Prà Martin.

This vantage point overlooks the peaks of the Catinaccio, which appear almost close enough to touch. Accompanied by Alberto Ziliotto on the guitar, Paolini's voice is reminiscent of that of Luigi Meneghello. From the pages of the book Piccoli Maestri (Little Teachers), we will hear fragments of lives lived, like that of the young student from Vicenza, who went up into the mountains to become a partisan, following the example of Antonio Giuriolo, a professor without a teaching post. In the words of Paolini, it is “a personal, unpretentious story of resistance that speaks to every generation”. This dedication, with which Paolini will greet the audience at first light, is mainly aimed at “young people, those who wish to listen to him”.
