In this chapter we treat the city of Longarone, immersed in the valleys of the province of Belluno and in the Dolomites, a World Heritage Site.
Longarone is sadly known to have been completely destroyed on October 9, 1963 at 22:39, when a landslide detached from Mount Toc, (which stands opposite the towns of Erto and Casso), fell into the artificial basin created by the Vajont dam, causing a gigantic wave that bypassed the dam itself and which swept into the countries below destroying them and causing 1917 deaths, of which 1458 only in Longarone.
A memory of this is surely the Church of S. Maria Immacolata which was rebuilt on the remains of the old Church in 1975 on a project by Giovanni Michelucci. What I design a set of volumes arranged in a circular way with two amphitheatres, one lower covered, where the classroom is located and one above, discovered, designed as a square from which you can see the Vajont dam.
Do not miss "Agrimont", or the spring fair that takes place in April, with exhibitions of mountain agriculture, forestry activities and typical agri-food products, such as cheese, honey and sausages.
