Tuesday 27th April
We will meet at the Cultural Centre of Anaunia Casa de Gentili in Sanzeno at 6 pm for a short presentation of the workshop.

Saturday 28th April
We will spent the day in a photographic trekking in the nature to capture the beauty of the blooms, with the professional photographer Marco Urso. There will be the possibility to test the Fuji equipment.

The Val di Non in blossom is an incredible show. At first glance it appears to us as a reassuring succession of terracing densely cultivated with apple orchards, but in its bowels it conceals an intricate system of very deep gorges dug in millennia by the explosive force of water. We will pass through very different environments, discovering the strategies that plants have carried out to ensure propagation. From the shy feminine flower of the hazel (Corylus avellana) that entrusts its future to the wind, to the more specialized and showy orchids, such as the Ophrys insectifera that imitates in appearance the insect that will attract to be pollinated.

We will leave by foot from Romeno, an altitude limit for the queen cultivation of Val di Non: the apple. The apple orchards are alternated with mowing fields whose scents of blooms will be found in local cheeses. Through the woods we will reach Dambel, one of the three entrances to the Novella River Park where we will find one of the most spectacular canyons that characterize the most hidden and unexpected part of the valley, the undisputed kingdom of mosses and hepatic. The steep slopes, wisely planted with apple orchards, slope down into rugged landscapes which are accessible in complete safety. We will arrive in San Biagio after a few ups and downs in the coolness of the gorge and the woods, and there we will appreciate the view of Santa Giustina lake and the Brenta Dolomites. The good exposure of the slopes and the climate mitigated by the lake will let us discover botanical species more typically Mediterranean. The return is provided in a comfortable shuttle bus.

Length of the trekking: 9 km

Sunday 29th April
In the morning we will stay in the classroom to discover post-production tools and techniques.
