dolomiti contemporanee is one of five projects that have been selected for the first edition of ideas – italian dialogues on excellence, arts and science, an initiative from the Directorate General for Cultural and Economic Promotion and Innovation of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

Five sectors, five protagonists, five stories to portray a dynamic, creative and resilient Italy.

The webseries, available at the www.ideasitaly.com website, is composed of five documentary-portraits dedicared to different creative and productive sectors. Its objective: to depict stories, facets and experiences of Italy’s most innovative, virtuous and dynamic aspects to an international public.

The project aims to reflect on the leading themes of contemporary debates, specifically looking at the great ethical challenges of the future: environment, innovation, common goods – all issues today’s Italy has a lot to say about. Each story points the spotlight on Italy’s vast resources when it comes to manufacturing, culture, tourism, and the environment.

Five ideas, all emblematic in their creative, success-oriented and innovative drive to present the excellence of the contemporary Italian scene to a global audience.

 

Arts and Heritage: Gianluca D’Incà Levis, creator of Dolomiti Contemporanee, carries out an experimental project on the juncture between contemporary art, recovery of industrail spaces and regeneration of mountainous environments.

In the video, Gianluca D’Incà Levis speaks about the vision and approach which characterise DC in its relationship with the themes of cultural responsibility and the regeneration of heritage and landscape, through contemporary art and the experimental hubs activated inside large, crucial sites which must be reconsidered and given new function: among them are the former Eni Vill

age of Corte di Cadore, the Vajont area, the Italia Ski Jump of Cortina d’Ampezzo, linked to the Milan-Cortina Olympics of 2026.

On April the 30th the first phase of the International Artistic Contest Two Calls for Vajont, launched in June 2014 by Dolomiti Contemporanee drew to a close.
The Contest was conceived as an open platform of reflection on the territory of the Vajont and on its terrible history (October the 9th 1963), and as an opportunity to rethink, through the production of a series of renovating images, the landscape and some of the main symbols of that history today, transforming them from still objects-memories of the tragedy into active and shared “construction sites” of the mind and spirit.
