STORIES OF MEN AND BARBED WIRE. GEOCACHING ON MONTE PIANTO
Hi-tech treasure hunting in the First World War locations. In partnership with Padua University Department of Historical and Geographic Sciences and the Ancient World and the Italian Association of Geography Teachers.
Treasure hunting with a map, a pen and a GPS in one of the most iconic First World War locations in the Dolomites. Accompanied by heart-rending songs, letters from the front, trenches and abandoned army posts, the participants will explore the length and breadth of Monte Piana, renamed by the soldiers of that era Monte Pianto (the Mountain of Tears), seeking out little treasures well-hidden among the rocks and turf.
A hi-tech treasure hunt played out on what was once the ultimate border, the front line, both having fun and reflecting on the terrible events that took place in this magnificent place and to which the peaks Le Tre Cime di Lavaredo bear witness.
Numbers for the treasure hunt are limited
