Fanes' places: Plan de Corones
round top (m 2277) over Brunico,
enjoying a very wide panorama. Once presumably the site of a
no trace of which can however be found today, Plan
is nowadays a devastated
haut-lieu of mass skiing.
de Corones, Dolasilla is crowned
with her Raietta
by her father. We dont'know whether the mountain is called de
Corones ("of the Crowns") in memory of that mythical
ceremony, o whether the ceremony has been located there according
to a name that could have nobody knows what different origin.
The pairing makes us suppose, however, that the first campaigns
to which Dolasilla took part were targeted at the rich villages
of the Pusteria valley. Only later on, the Fanes will
turn South, with tragic results.
