The volume begins with a brief description by Ester Cason Angelini about the “serial” property of nine components of the Dolomites World Heritage, according to criterion vii and viii of Unesco. It continues with a comprehensive explanation of the geological and geomorphological aspects of Marmolada Group, written by Danilo Giordano, under the scientific guidance of G.B. Pellegrini. Two contributions follow on the environmental importance of Marmolada Group (Cesare Lasen) and the recent evolution of Marmolada Glacier in relation to climate (Anselmo Cagnati and Andrea Crepaz). The analysis of historical aspects of the considered area include two sections dedicated to the dynamics of First World War occurred in Marmolada (Luciana Palla) and the alpinistic history of Marmolada (Ester Cason Angelini). Furthermore, border issues of Marmolada are drawn by the extract from †Giovan Battista Pellegrini, glottologist, which contents refer to his previous paper written on this topic. Ester Cason Angelini later discusses oronyms and toponomies of the Marmolada Group. The book concludes with a detailed description of two walking excursions (with eight stops each) conducted during the course, suitable for schools and groups guided by participants from the Geography Course.
