DinoMiti. Fossil reptiles and dinosaurs in the Dolomites is a fascinating journey through the history of the Dolomites region through the most important fossil finds. On display, exhibits of exceptional importance for the scientific meaning and beauty, rarity, accompanied by information about the history of the evolution of reptiles from the first traces during the Carboniferous-Permian until the demise of the dinosaurs at the end of Cretacio.

Up to thirty years ago, no one would have thought paleontologist can find traces of dinosaurs in the dolomite area and the knowledge gained to date on the geology of the Southern Alps were entirely unsuitable environments to accommodate large and fearsome reptiles ". Today, we know that a variety of terrestrial reptiles, marine and populated, for millions of years, our land and our seas. In the rocks that form the backbone of the Dolomites were indeed discovered the oldest footprints of amphibians in the Alps and the longest dinosaur walks across Europe, the outstanding Tridentinosauro and the oldest flying reptiles of the world.
These finds, together with numerous remains of fossil plants, allowed the detailed reconstruction of the living environments and climate change from the late Paleozoic through the Mesozoic, helping to make the Holiday an area key to understanding of the most dramatic events in the history of life on Earth.
