Description

Historical exploration of the Alps. A corner of the Dolomites. North and South. Venice and the Alps. It is a road in the mountains. The story of a border world. An archive always lead to questions, Dr. Schuster, but do not always provide the answers; even in this it is a little like life.

“Matteo Melchiorre is a stubborn historian. First of all, he makes every effort to avoid the “orderly and systematic account of Major Events” that for many, despite the developments in historical science in the past fifty years, is “History” in its entirety. What’s more, he finds it difficult to wear the mask and keep up the posture of the Historian: reading his wonderful book (wonderful because it makes ordinary and daily things and materials look wonderful) you might mistake him for a wanderer, a lover, a dreamer, or a storyteller. Really, behind the dreamy pace of the narrative, the historical work of Melchiorre is broad, solid and accurate. It is thanks to this very serious work, belyingly told as if it were the pastime of a layabout, page after page, the centuries-old life of two communities is presented to our imagination and knowledge: the town of Feltre, below, and the inhabitants of the Primiero, above. United and separated by a pass, the Schenèr – described, depending on who crossed it, as a “beautiful canyon” or “horrid abyss” – which has always been a border and crossing at the same time, a fortified place and an umbilical cord. As in the beautiful Requiem for a tree, Matteo Melchiorre here succeeds in satisfying not only our desire for knowledge, but also the needs of sensitivity and imagination.”
