The ancient history of the Ladin population, an almost unknown minority of people living in the Dolomites, is one of the most hidden.
We have to Thank writers like Karl Felix Wolff and Ugo Rossi that in the early years of the twentieth century collected a lot of testimony from the inhabitants of the Ladin valley turning them into fantasy texts.
Desiderio di Luna is a legend written by K.F. Wolff and published for the first time in Innsbruck in 1905 on the newspaper L’amik di Ladins/ Der Ladinerfreund, one of the first attempts to give visibility to the Ladin population with the Austro-Hungarian authorities.
