Flora Eterna

Flora Eterna

Many plants exist almost completely unchanged for more than 300 million years. They are still widely used by people today: for medicinal purposes or in the kitchen. The Dolomites in particular are regarded as a paradise for the development of the flora. The exhibition shows the evolution of plants from the beginning until today.

Innichen, unsettled periods

Innichen, unsettled periods

How did Innichen evolve to the crowded, chaotic village we see today? Dolomythos takes a holistic view of what was built in the small town in the Dolomites during different historical periods – what has been lost, what saved and what protected. The visualisation explores through photos and movies the development of Innichen through the evolution of the road network and preserved buildings.

10 years Dolomites World Heritage

10 years Dolomites World Heritage - Dolomites: The history of discovery

The ‘discovery’ of the Dolomites can be dated back to 1789 when the French scientist Dèodat de Dolomieu, traveling through South Tyrol, reported the finding of a distinguishing rock which, after an analysis, turned out be a new mineral. Subsequently, to pay homage to his discoverer, this unknown mineral was given the name Dolomite. Beginning in the late 18th Century, the Dolomite Mountains in Northern Italy have been the location for major sedimentological developments, from the discovery of the mineral dolomite to the formulation of the coral-reef hypothesis to explain the origin of the massive dolomite structures that define the splendid scenery of the region.


The dying mountains

The dying mountains

In August 2016 a huge part of the Croda Rossa in the Braies Dolomites crashed down due to climatic changes. Global warming made the ice melt and the mountains collapse. A spectacular movie shows the rock fall.
