Dolomites of Peace - debating peace today at yesterday's scenes of war

Jun 02, 2005 / Francesco Pastorelli
"Dolomites of Peace" is the name of a series of nine events devoted to the subject of peace to be run by writers, philosophers, actors, church representatives and experts between 1 July and 24 August.
The participants will include the author Alessandro Baricco, the head of UNICEF Italy Roberto Salvan, and Ali Mohamed Gedi, Prime Minister of Somalia.
"Dolomites of Peace" can be expected to generate a high standard of debate on subjects of concern in the world today such as poverty, hunger, health, the environment, education, and peaceful coexistence between different peoples, cultures and creeds. The events will be held along the Peace Trail - a special attraction of the Trentino in the form of a path over 300 kilometres long leading through the Dolomites from the Marmolada to Passo Stelvio and marking the front in the First World War. The meetings will be held in a simple setting in the open air and will all start at 2 p.m. In spite of the Great War backcloth - complete with fortifications, trenches and fortresses - the talks will focus not on the past but on the problems of today and visions for the future.
