With the auspices of the Institut Ladin "Micurà de Ru" of S.Martin de Tor, the book by Nicola dal Falco "Miti ladini delle Dolomiti [Ladinian Myths of the Dolomites] - Ey de Net e Dolasila" has been published by Palombi Editore wirh the annotations and the essay "Narrating the Origins" by Ulrike Kindl.
At first glance, the literary part of the work shows several points of high artistical value, but for the friends of the Fanes its true importance resides in prof. Kindl's work, who exposes here an important and detailed updating of her alreay expressed ideas on the subject. Her opinions, as she is a top rank expert, must always be kept in the highest consideration, although her views are not always coincident with my own. I will therefore meditate upon them thoroughly and expose on this site the result of my reflexions.
