Venosta Valley and the Alps
Places of power that exist to the beat of their own drum, a rhythm that is many thousands of years old. Where the idea of slowing down is no empty promise. The cultural region of Venosta Valley and Val Senales in South Tyrol is characterized by its lively customs, traditions and farmers life. The environment in the Upper Venosta Valley is largely characterized by green valleys and high Alpine pastures. In this region nature and culture create their own symbiosis.
