After lunch, I walked around the village. Canazei is a quiet little village. Walking the village I found a strange monument. It was made of wood and stone.

I did not know the meaning of Ladin” at that time.

The Ladin people are an ethnic group in northern Italy. They are distributed in the valleys of South Tyrol, Fassa (Trentino), Livinallongo (also known as Buchenstein or Fodom) and Ampezzo in the Province of Belluno. Their native language is Ladin, a Rhaeto-Romance language related to the Swiss Romansh and Friulian languages. They are part of Tyrol, with which they share culture, history, traditions, environment and architecture.
