On June 26th 2009 the Dolomites were granted UNESCO World Heritage status in recognition of both their unique beauty and their geological significance. The UNESCO convention stipulates that areas of cultural and natural importance in every part of the world should be preserved for the benefit of all mankind, and the insertion of the Dolomites in the World Heritage List is therefore an extraordinary accolade and a fantastic opportunity for our region which brings with it a need to take responsibility for the protection and sustainable development of this splendid alpine region.
The UNESCO Dolomites symbolise our natural heritage, complex and diverse yet also offering a sense of togetherness. The nine Dolomites ranges collectively boast geological marvels and unique landscapes with a rich tapestry of geological and aesthetic connections.
The nine Dolomites ranges which make up this extraordinary “geological archipelago” cover five provinces (Belluno, Bolzano, Pordenone, Trento and Udine) and an area of 142,000 hectares in which four different, officially-recognised languages are spoken. The geographical location of the World Heritage Site across five provinces characterised by different institutional and administrative setups necessitated the founding, on May 13th 2010, of the Fondazione Dolomiti Dolomiten Dolomites Dolomitis UNESCO, with the aim of coordinating the management of the Site in order to ensure its needs are safeguarded.
Cadore is situated in the heart of the UNESCO Dolomites, centrally located with respect to three of the nine ranges: Pelmo-Croda da Lago; Dolomiti Friulane and d’Oltre Piave; and the northern Dolomites.
Following on from the highly acclaimed exhibition of Titian which took place in his home town of Pieve di Cadore in 2013, the Titian Itinerary guides visitors to Cadore across some of the locations which inspired his paintings.

The most remarkable works of art of the village are to be seen in St Nicholas’ church (end of the 12th century); both the village and the church bear the bishop’s name. Inside you can admire the wonderful frescoes by Gianfrancesco da Tolmezzo and a painting attributed to Cesare Bagni. In the hamlet of Gera, Casa Vettori is a fine example of the architecture of the aristocracy, whereas in the vicinity there is the church of the Holy Trinity and St Julia. The body of the saint, held in the church, was bestowed by cardinal Costantino Patrizi to baroness Cecilia Colissis Vettori. One of the works of art to be seen here is a remarkable painting by Lazzarini, with Saints Victor and Corona, the Holy Trinity and St Michael. In the hamlet of Campitello there is the more recent chapel of the Holy Heart. The hamlet of Costa offers wonderful views over the entire Comelico and also the opportunity to visit St Daniel’s chapel with some paintings by local artists Pio Solero and Danilo Soligo.

The village lies on the shores of the Centro Cadore Lake and is surrounded by several mountain ranges, notably Spalti di Toro, Monfalconi and Marmarole. As you walk along its streets, you can admire several frescoed houses, such as the 16th century Palazzo Valmassoi in gothic style, casa Barnabò, casa Cian e casa Teza. St George is the patron of the parish: the original church burnt down in the 19th century but was swiftly rebuilt. The new parish church was designed in 1861 by the architects Segusini and Sandi. In the village there are several chapels: the oldest is St Joseph’s (17th century), St Anthony of Padua, Our Lady of the Snows and Our Lady of Health in Collesello, while the churches of Our Lady of Graces and Madonna del Ponte were built in the 18th century. St Rocco’s chapel displays a painting by Tommaso Vecellio. Other churches are to be found in Grea (St Leonard and St Anthony), in Molinà (Our Lady of Graces), in Deppo (St Bona) and the War Memorial.
Worthy of mention is the refuge of Eremo dei Romiti on Mount Froppa, which stands on the hill of the same name at 1,164 metres above sea level and was built in the 18th century. The nearby church of St John the Baptist the Precursor dates from 1724. These religious buildings were home to some Franciscan friars called “romiti” between 1720 and 1810. The hermitage was founded by the friar Giovanni Maria Pinazza and the life of the monks was defined by a series of prescriptions that regulated their daily activities until the community was closed by Napoleon’s decree in 1810 and the site was abandoned . In the last few years extensive restoration work has been carried out with the aim of using the buildings for cultural and tourist purposes. The Stations of the Cross have been set up along the footpath leading up to the compound.

The Magnifica Comunità di Cadore is based in the palace on Piazza Tiziano in Pieve di Cadore, alongside the archdeaconal church which symbolises the region’s faith. This ancient institution, founded in the fourteenth century, has for centuries represented Cadore’s autonomy of government thanks to a system of self-governance. From 1338 Cadore’s citizens had a statute, a set of rules which regulated civil, political and administrative affairs and which was updated continually in the centuries that followed. It fell to Napoleon, in 1806, to suppress the Magnificent Community which would later see its rebirth, as a moral entity, in 1875. Today the palace is home to the MARC, Cadore Archaeological Museum, which showcases the pre-Roman and Roman archaeological treasures from the sanctuary of Lagole and the central part of Cadore. The museum houses numerous exhibits: vases, handles of simpulum, ornate bronze sheets and figures, weapons, knives and day-to-day tools, and ceramic and glass receptacles. In addition, the palace is home to a precious archive comprising a historic collection of documents (decrees and scripts from the 13th to the19th century) and a modern library bringing together studies and research articles on the Cadore, as well as a specialist library dedicated to Titian. Not far from the palace is the childhood home of Titian, first built in the 15th century and subsequently altered several times. Only the radical restorative intervention completed in 1932, organised by the Magnificent Community which owns the building, restored the artist’s home to its original state. Today the building is made up of two storeys in masonry with wooden external staircase and balconies and a two-layered roof covered in traditional wooden shingles. On December 17th 1922, Royal Decree no. 1725 declared the house a national monument.
