Cortina d'Ampezzo Places And Charm, Italy

Cortina d'Ampezzo is one of the most famous mountain resorts in the world, included in the "Best of the Alps" association which unites the most exclusive mountain resorts of 5 different alpine nations. Along with Cortina, the association includes legendary resorts like Chamonix Mont-Blanc, Davos, Garmisch- Partenkirchen, Grindelwald, Kitzbühel, Lech Zürs am Arlberg, Megève, St. Anton am Arlberg, St. Moritz, Seefeld and Zermatt, ambassadors of alpine beauty.
The heart of Cortina is undoubtedly Corso Italia, the main street and VIP hot spot. Luxury gushes along the sidewalk in the exclusive shops and boutiques: fashion, jewelry and antiques but also exhibits and food.
The church of San Filipino and Giacomo was build in 1775. It houses sculptures by Andrea Brustolon and paintings by Francesco A. Zeiler, Giuseppe Zanchi, Luigi Gillarduzzi and Giuseppe Ghedina. The tower was built later (between 1851 and 1858) still dominating Cortina and visible from various points in the area.
Don't miss the Ciasa de ra Regoles, that houses three superb museums: the paleontology and ethnographic museums and the Mario Rimoldi modern art collection with over 400 works on display by twentieth century Italian artists.

The charm Cortina holds on artists, writers and intellectuals dates back to the time and history of the twentieth century. The musician Mahler, writers Comisso, Buzzati, Parise, Hemingway, poets Montale and Zanzotto, journalists Biagi and Montanelli and painters De Chirico and De Pisis were all attracted to the beauty of the mountains in Cortina.
To admire the twentieth century artworks, visit the Mario Rimoldi Modern Art Museum that hosts an enviable collection of works by De Pisis, Sironi, De Chirico, Campigli, Carrà, Cesetti, Depero, Guidi, Guttuso, Martini, Morandi, Music, Rosai, Sassu, Savinio, Semeghini, Severini, Soffici, Tomea, Tosi and Vedova.
Cortina is home to culture hosting a myriad of events: meetings with authors, chorus festivals, jazz concerts, photo and wooden sculpture exhibits.
