CAI 401 MOUNTAIN PATH / REYTEMBERGHER TOWER
Since the first edition, the project aims at reviewing the places of the World War.
The main venue is the mountain path CAI 401 which climbs the Pal Piccolo Mount, split between Italy (Paluzza Municipality) and Austria (Kötschach-Mauthen Municipality). It crosses both nations starting from the Monte Croce Carnico pass, the most ancient street to reach the Norico, corresponding to the Italian border with Austria. It is a unique path, both in historical and naturalistic terms, being the most meaningful and better preserved place of the World War front in Carnia. Along the path, from the bottom to the top (1886 m.), trenches and soldiers’ shelters from the World War are still visible, as well as the disused customs house.
The other project’s venue is the Reytembergher tower in Tolmezzo, a medieval building converted into an exhibition space for the occasion.
The aim is to connect different places belonging to the same territory by acting in two distant spaces.
