Fiemme Valley, Ziano di Fiemme, Trentino, Italy
In Classical Antiquity, the valley was part of the Cisalpine Gaul province of the Roman Empire. Following the Augustan organization of Italy, the valley became part of Roman Italy. Since the 11th century and until 1803, Fiemme Valley belonged to the county of Trent, part of the Bishopric of Trent within the Holy Roman Empire. After the treaty of Luneville, under the name "Welschtirol" (i.e. Italian-Ladin speaking Tyrol) it became part of the county of Tyrol under the Austrian Empire.
In 1920 with the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye at the end of the first World War it was annexed to the kingdom of Italy.
Cermis, Cavalese, Trentino, Italy
Cermis (Alpe Cermis in italian) is a mountain of the Lagorai group in eastern Trentino, Italy in the comune of Cavalese.
Part of the Val di Fiemme-Obereggen, it is famous for its ski slopes.
It was the scene of major disasters involving the aerial tramway style cable car system on the mountain: the Cavalese cable car disaster in 1976, and the Cavalese cable car disaster in 1998; the latter occurred when a U.S. military plane, while flying too low against regulations, cut a cable supporting a gondola of an aerial tramway, killing 20 people. The two cable car runs of the system involved in those incidents have since been replaced by three consecutive multi-cabin gondola lifts. The arrival site of the first chair lift, from where the second starts, may be also reached by road.
