[Autom. eng. transl.] "Stories obscured by history" have always interested the writer Sebastiano Vassalli who, after the seventeenth century of the Chimera, chose the era of Napoleon in 1992 to tell the story of Marco and Mattio between the Dolomites of Zoldo and Venice. It is the novel of a valley at the center of the exhibition that illuminates for the first time the preparatory papers kept in the author's archive, including sketches, travel notes, consulted books and correspondence from letters. Val di Zoldo thus pays homage, even with a literary path, to those who narrated the dramatic story of Mattio Locat, one of the first clinical cases of modern psychiatry, showing lights and shadows of the mountains and the national character of Italians and giving voice to dreams of a mad and loser, yet capable, in the most difficult moments, of "looking up to the starry sky".
