Val di Funes
The Val di Funes Valley is a real jewel: small, cosy and lush, from the Villnöß river to the mountain summer pastures at the foot of the pale mountains. It’s always exhilarating to suddenly see the enormous grey gravel cones looming above you surmounted by sheer cliffs, rocky spikes and peaks that, depending on the time of day, are tinged with ochre, pale hues, pink or copper red.
The sun transforms the Odle/Geisler into a colourful rainbow. The three charming towns at the bottom of the valley are Tiso/Teis, S. Pietro/St. Peter and S. Maddalena/St. Magdalena. With everything that’s needed for summer and winter tourism and the best hospitality for hikers and mountain climbers, Villnöß Valley, with its numerous trails and cable mountain paths, rocky ridges, glacial cirques and peaks, is a real paradise for mountain lovers.
It comes as no surprise to know that this is where Reinhold Messner was born. Visit the Alpine summer pastures, stopping to relax, returning through dwarf pines and scented forests, spending long and fun-filled evenings at the hotel and in the village.
Stockfish what else?
This is a picture from the project Upstream Cods; Upstream cods is our way to tell people the story, using pictures, about stockfish and salted cod, how these two products gets fished, prepared and presented to everyone’s table. The meaning of Upstream Cods is to follow the full production chain backwards: we’ll start from Liguria’s festivals and restaurants concerned stockfish and salted cod, going upstream to the Lofoten islands, Norway, where the cods are fished and prepared to be sold to public, as we know it…be sure that we are also going to snoop around on how they are cooked in their native land. And, by the way, will photograph the natural beauty of these remote islands located beyond the Arctic Circle!
