    The ethnic festival 'Lo Spirito del Pianeta'

    Annual

    The Ethnic Festival 'Lo Spirito del Pianeta' is the only festival in Italy dedicated to indigenous cultures. It was created by the 'Lo Spirito del Pianeta' Association, which organized this event to provide a direct testimony from individuals who live daily through their own culture and to share it with others. The goal is to dispel stereotypes that often do not reflect reality, showcasing the movement of dances, prayers, and the spirituality of each of these peoples. The fundamental goals of the festival include promoting and facilitating the encounter, mutual understanding, and fraternity among diverse communities. It also aims to raise awareness, appreciate, and preserve tribal cultures while supporting these communities in safeguarding their environmental and economic conditions crucial for survival, and the maintenance and enhancement of their traditions.

    Tracing Migrants' Paths - From the Alps to the Andes

    Annual

    Since 2018, the association 'Sentiero dei Sogni' has promoted the project 'From the Alps to the Andes. The initiative is inspired by the discovery of a trunk containing hundreds of photos and documents belonging to individuals who emigrated to South America from three villages located in Val Menaggio, province of Como (the Municipality of Bene Lario, the Grona fraction of the Municipality of Grandola ed Uniti, and the Piano Porlezza fraction of the Municipality of Carlazzo). Its goal is to rediscover and highlight the extraordinary history of emigration that involved more than half of the families between 1843 and the early 20th century. The objective is to reinforce the memory and social cohesion of these communities, acknowledging the significant public works made possible by emigrants' donations and fostering their connection with fellow citizens living on the other side of the world. At the same time, the initiative seeks to shine a spotlight, encompassing both tourism and economic benefits, on the historic villages and the natural environments that envelop them. This involves establishing an open-air museum, complete with itineraries that intricately intertwine the history of the emigrants with the rich tapestry of the local area. With this goal in mind, the website www.dallealpialleande.it was established, accompanied by the organization of several events.
