Everyone run to the Festival of Pastin

The first event dedicated to a unique specialty of our region: the irresistible Pastin! We are sure that there is nobody in the world who would not be captivated by the taste and aroma of the pastin. But if you don’t have the same certainty, you can spread the word and invite everyone to the first event dedicated to the pastin to remove any doubts: from October 28th to 30th, at Piazza dei Martiri in Belluno, pastin for all, as well as sports, fun and much more!


Don’t make plans for this weekend: from October 28th to 30th at Piazza dei Martiri in Belluno, AICS Comitato Provinciale di Belluno, NG TIMING and Gruppo Alpini di Salce, with the sponsorship and co-organization by the Comune di Belluno, with support of the Consorzio Operatori of downtown and of the Pro Loco Pieve Castionese , we organized a truly unique event of its kind: “Il PASTIN, in piazza… …di corsa” in Belluno, at the very centrally located Piazza dei Martiri! Don’t miss our  Adorable Belluno drunk on the aromas of the typical Bellunese delicacies from October 28th to 30th!

What is pastin?

“Pastin is the result of artisanal production, linked to tradition and passion for the good things. An entirely Bellunese pride, for which the original recipe asks for the use of, in varying percentages, meat of pork and beef, seasoned by a mix of secret spices that make it particularly flavorful. A local product produced from carefully selected meats, exclusively raised in the province of Belluno.”

But why “Il Pastin, in piazza…di corsa”?

During the event dedicated to pastin, we will compete in the first “BELLUNO URBAN MARATHONSunday October 30th at 9:00am! What does it consist of? It includes a run of 6 laps on a route of 7.033 km in no less than the historical center of Belluno!

To follow, on the same route, at the same time, there will be other shorter and less challenging runs:
the “URBAN HALF MARATHON“, at 9:00am that is 3 laps for a total of 21.09 km, the “SPORTS RUN“, at 10:00am in which you can run two laps of the historical center for a total of 14.066 km and, finaly, the “FAMILY RUN“, also at 10:00am, perfect for families with children as it is only one lap of the route for a total of only 7 km.

A medical certificate for competitive play (certificato medico agonistico) is required for the URBAN and the SPORTS RUN.

Download the app from izi.TRAVEL

Find the “DOLOM.IT” course – “Cercatori d’acqua”

Respond to the questions

Take on the competition


DOLOM.IT ( is the virtual museum of the landscape, created entirely by students of the Province of Belluno. Born from an idea of the ISOIPSE association and the hotbed of creativity ADOMultimedia Heritage, the portale began its first section in May 2016 thanks to the contributions of more than 200 students, nine high schools, nine cultural institutions including museums, archives and libraries. #ACQUE is the theme of the 2016 edition, that has received funding from BIM Gestione Servizi Pubblici and BIM Belluno infrastructures.





-Wednesday August 17th-

The day will be dedicatedly entirely to the upcoming inauguration of the new museum at the prestigious Fulcis Palace. Citizens and tourists will have the opportunity to visit the museum for the last time before its relocation. To reflect, accompanied by exports, on its opportunities and challenges offered by the opening of a new museum space, of which the cloister will be accessible for the first time and on an unusual street, for a moving themed event with music and images that recount the relocation from the old to the new museum. The birth of the Civic Museum is indebted to the donation made in part by the Bellunese doctor Antonio Giampiccoli of his own gallery in 1872, which became the foundation of the museum collection. And subsequently others like that of Count Florio Miari, that of scientific materials donated by the provincial council of nature and industry, that of the geologist Tommaso Antonio Catullo, of the ornithologist Angelo Doglioni, of the botanist Alessandro Fracesco Sandi and others. The Board of Jurists palace had just been restored following the earthquake of 1873 when the museum opened to the public in 1876.




Currently the museum houses paintings, sculptures, plaques, bronze works, drawings and prints, the Zambelli-Perale collection of art objects, the jewelry collection of Prosdocimi Bozzoli and the Archeological Collection. The first curator of the museum was Osvaldo Monti, an important figure of the Bellunese world in his time, originally from Belluno. He was responsible for adding the logs of the ancient village of Belluno to the museum’s collection. The museum is currently home to works by Simone da Cusighe, Matteo Cesa, Jacopo Palma il Giovane, Sebastiano and Marco Ricci, Ippollito Caffi and other painters. There are sculptures by Andrea Brustolon and Valentino Panciera Besarel, bronze plaques of Valerio Belli, Cristoforo Caradosso, Moderno, Andrea Riccio and many other works.


The new Civic Museum of Belluno will be located (end of 2016) in entirely renovated spaces, after the conservation and restoration, financed by the Fondazione Cariverona, of the Fulcis Palace complex, that will host exhibition area of around 3000 square meters on five floors. The museum will present itself as the only one in Veneto: the citizen collection displayed in one of the most beautiful 16th century urban buildings of the region, where the dimension of the Palace, with decor including frescos and stuccos, becomes a primary element of attraction, alongside the works of the museum and its historical-artistic collection.




The city of Belluno, in collaboration with the Officine della Cultura, for the fourth consecutive year, is launching “Ferragosto e dintorni”, a festival for the rediscovery and appreciation of the historical-artistic-environmental heritage of the city through the organization of a series of events that will enliven cultural places and urban spaces from August 12th to 23rd.


The calendar, rich with proposals, includes concerts, performance of theater, music and dance, and guided tours focused on the city and its monuments. This year, with the opening of the new museum at the 16th century Fulcis Palace, the festival includes an entire day dedicated to the old and the new museum that will culminate in an enchanting concert in the cloister of the new palace, open in preview, to celebrate the occasion. Special bright moments will be dedicated to families, children and adults with a “technological” treasure hunt thanks to the app Izi.Travel. The Bellunese who stay in the city during the Ferragosto period can rediscover little known corners of the historical center that are not always accessible. Tourists and visitors will have the opportunity to get to know and appreciate the spatial, humanistic and cultural resources offered by our city.

Coming soon: The Festival of the Fisciot

The ancient festival of Our Lady of Sorrows is one of the most anticipated events in Belluno. The historical center fills with colorful stands, aromatic flowers and crowds of people who greet one another as they celebrate the arrival of spring. 

Everything is ready for the long-awaited Festival of the Fisciot, the holy celebration and gathering of the community with which the city of Belluno greets the flower season.

The celebration has ancient origins: since 1716, the statue of Madonna dei Sette dolori (Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows), used by the Bellunese citizenry to commemorate the end of a terrible epidemic of pestilence, has been carried in a procession across the historical center, two Sundays before Easter Sunday. And this year the tradition lives on: Sunday March 13th is the annual Festival of the Fisciot!

But do you know why it is called this? It gets its name from the “fischietti di richiamo” (whistles of excitement), which once upon a time were among the items most sold by local artisans at their stands on the streets of the city center as part of this Sunday festival.

The details: the events of the 2016 Festival of the Fisciot

Spread out across the entire city center, including Via Dante and Via Cavour, there will be more than 200 vendors with stands selling candies, toys, glassware, ceramics, wood and fabric, and even jewelry, ornaments, paintings, discs, cassette tapes, wicker products, copper, glasses, aromatic essences,  honey, leather goods, umbrellas, scarves, balloons and of course, regional food and drink.

Furthermore, this year in Piazza Piloni will be host to the exhibit market of fine food and tasting, while Piazza dei Martiri will be host to the market of local agricultural products, managed by Unione Montana Bellunese.

In Piazza Duomo, once again there will be the market “Fiori in Città: la Città sboccia” (Flowers in the City: the City blooms), as well as the antiques market “Cose di vecchie case” (Objects from old houses) that with its selected vendors is one of the most anticipated and popular events, before its return for the summer season. Piazzale Marconi will be the setting for a stand selling seasonal fruits.

Beginning at 10:45am in Piazza Duomo, at the corner of the former courthouse, the marching band “Citta di Belluno” (City of Belluno) will perform. The traditional procession will occur in the same place at 4:00pm.

Free shuttle service

To help with transportation, the city has instituted its usual free shuttle service that will run from 9:30am to 7:30pm for the entire day of Sunday March 13th. Here are the details:

Porta Dojona
belluno @en, en, evidenza, homepage @en

Porta Dojona and its talking walls

Porta Dojona (Dojona Gate) is one of the most distinctive symbols of the city of Belluno. It has seen nearly one thousand years of Bellunese history, endured several restorations, been expanded and covered. But what you might not know is this gate hides a small secret of daily life. Read on to learn more. 

Porta Dojona is one of the five gates (four official and one “for emergencies”) that allows you to enter inside the city walls of Belluno, and is one of three that is still intact today.

We are talking about a real monument, one that is a testament to the history of Belluno since 1289: the year in which its internal archway was erected, originally called “di Foro” (public square) or “Mercato” (market), designed by Vecello da Cusighe and in honor of the count-bishop Adalgerlo of the 8th level.

The second part of the gate, as in the actual “facade” that overlooks Vittorio Emanuele Square, dates back to the Renaissance period, specifically 1553: it is the work of Niccolò Tagliapietra, built on request for chancellor Francesco Diedo (note the inscription above the arch FRANC. DIEDO. PRAET. PRAEF.Q. OPT). You can even see various recognizable Renaissance-style elements, such as the columns positioned on high pedestals, the triglyphs carved in the architrave and the two caryatids aside the Lion of San Marco.

One of the principal features of this evocative place of the city is the world that one enters by passing under the gate: you must however know that it has not always been this way. In reality, the passageway was first covered in 1622, thus giving Porta Dojona its characteristic feeling of a “small-scale arcade.”

Moreover, not even the name is the same as it was at the beginning: the gate was named “Dojona” in 1609 in honor of Giorgio Doglioni, aid to prince-bishop of Bressanone.

Have you ever heard someone refer to this gate as “Porta de la Cadene“? If that happened and you wanted to ask why, we’ll tell you: it takes this name from the drawbridge that was here until c. 1730 (when the moat was buried) from Via Mezzaterra.

But now we arrive at that which we had promised, the virtually hidden quirk of this gate: we have explained that this gate is a symbol of the city unto itself, in particular its walls, the inscriptions written mostly in Latin that recall the construction of the gate, its successive restoration projects and even the happenings of the city of Belluno. But there are also inscriptions less renowned and uncommon, which recount episodes of daily life.

Let us explain further. In the points shown using the arrows in the following image, if you look closely (we mean in person, if not, what beauty is there?), you can see written the names of people and their dates. Know who these people are? These are the autographs inscribed by the guards who protected this gate in the middle of the 1800s. And do you know how they left their permanent mark on the Porta Dojona? They did it with their bayonets.

Il tour italiano di Aperol Spriz a Piave Beach

Il Parco Fluviale di Lambioi in collaborazione con Bellunolanotte, Sportivamente Belluno e Comune di Belluno, ospiterà la tappa del tour italiano di Aperol Spritz.

Venerdì 10 luglio il Parco Fluviale di Lambioi ospiterà una tappa del tour italiano di Aperol Spritz – “Hostaria del Vecio Aperol Spritz”.

Aperol Spritz porta l’esperienza dell’aperitivo nelle locations più caratteristiche e inaspettate del Veneto, valorizzando le radici storico-culturali dello spritz e promuovendo la tradizione e le curiosità del territorio. Direttamente dagli anni ’70 arriverà il mitico pulmino van della Volkswagen sinonimo di viaggio e libertà, allestito ad hoc e trasformato in postazione “chiosco bar”. Sarà affiancato da un banco di “cicchetti” tipici preparati da un ristoratore locale, che farà da ambasciatore raccontando menù e ricette.

Un barista professionista invece insegnerà la ricetta per preparare nel migliore dei modi la bevanda che accompagna i nostri aperitivi, e due ragazze immagine offriranno gratuitamente lo spritz fino a esaurimento scorte!

Non mancherà di certo la musica! Il van infatti accoglierà anche un dj con musica dalle ore 18.00 fino alle 23.00 .
