The Dolomites are our home and our greatest inspiration.
Over the years we have studied the workings of nature and what makes it so unique and powerful, we have protected its biodiversity and never ceased to observe, analyse and be inspired. This is why Dolomia is the purest expression of these mountains, which are known and loved throughout the world.
Change and balance
The evolution of the Dolomites was slow but steady.
237 million years ago the area was covered by a vast ocean, then coral atolls rose out of the water to become the soaring rocky spires we see today.
The ridges and peaks are alive, they breathe, change, shine, at the mercy of time and the weather.
Fascination and familiarity
This natural amphitheatre of peaks and ice that makes the Dolomites so special is not hostile but fascinating and full of life, it’s almost impossible not to be mesmerised by it.
The alternating meadows and rock faces are never the same but they all convey a familiar feeling of wellbeing and remind us that time spent in the mountains amid nature is like coming home, like reconnecting with a part of ourselves we have somehow lost in our busy everyday lives.
Energy and purity
The energy built up over thousands of years in the coral reefs lives today in the Dolomite rock which, in turn, releases it into the water that flows through it. This is why the water in these mountains is so rare and pure.
The energy and power of millions of years live on in its elements.
Resilience and tenacity
Flowers that grow at high altitudes in the mountains are a small miracle of nature. The harsh, unforgiving weather conditions at high elevations like those we find in the Dolomites determine the evolution of Alpine flora, making it stronger, preserving its natural beauty and revealing its tenacity.
Colour and light
The Dolomites are a kaleidoscope of colour: the colours of the sky and the rock mingle with those of the woods, meadows, valleys, rivers, lakes and flowers. On clear summer days when the sun warms the rocks, the peaks and rock faces are alive with colour - from yellow to fiery red hues and flashes of pink and purple. This phenomenon is called Alpenglow.
