The works you find along the way are the result of the imagination of the students of the Liceo Artistico Soraperra in Pozza di Fassa, then created by a local artist. Marco Nones has created a LandArt gallery, with works of art made of wood, stone and forest materials, surrounded by nature which, over time, further shapes them. He also created "Dragon Egg", a nest resting on the roots of 3 larches of 3 m planted upside down to support it.

Destination

Gardonè

Turn-by-turn directions

In the Dragon Forest, these powerful winged creatures that live on Latemar have left lots of clues to help you find them.

Look for the signs they have left behind them on a wonderful trail created with the help of the Soraperra Art School in Pozza di Fassa.

Here, students and teachers from the school have displayed the "proof" of the dragons’ presence: genuine pieces of Land Art. Ask for the Play book (€ 6,00) at the info point in Gardonè, that tells you the story of a dragon!

There are lots of great games to put your Dragon Seeker’s skills to the test. If you manage to complete the book, you will receive a small prize from our expert dragonologist.
