On December 11th, on the occasion of the International Mountain Day 2021, the Center for Religious Studies of FBK and the Trento Film Festival organize together a series of events focusing on the major themes that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought into public discussion also in the highlands: fragility, resilience, solitude, crowd, freedom, health, conflicts between generations, care for the environment.


The main event is a panel discussion on “After the pandemic: what does the future look like from the mountains?” (SOSAT Conference Room, via Malpaga, 17, Trento, 10 – 12.30 am). Antonio G. Bortoluzzi (novelist), Nicola Magrin (illustrator), Roberta Silva (mountain hut warden), Michele Trentini (documentary filmmaker) will be the speakers. The meeting will be moderated by Paolo Costa (philosopher, FBK-ISR).

The round table will be followed in the afternoon by a dialogue between N. Magrin and A.G. Bortoluzzi, organized by Lisa Orlandi of La Piccola Libreria. The meeting will be held in Levico, at the Ristorante Boivin, from 4.30 to 6.30 p.m., and will focus on Magrin’s book Altri voli con le nuvole (2021) and Bortoluzzi’s Valturcana trilogy (Cronache dalla valle, Paesi alti, Vita e morte della montagna).

Finally, in the evening, at the Cinema Modena, Room 2, at 8.30 p.m., there will be a screening of the documentary “La Casa Rossa” (Germany, Italy / 2021 / 82’, winner of the audience Best Feature Film Award, Premio Solidarietà Cassa di Trento e Premio Lizard – Viaggio e Avventura, 69.
