Official: the Olympic and World Champion in cross country ski Maurilio De Zolt will be Sports Ambassador of 5 days Italy 2019 of orienteering on the Dolomites of mountainous region of Comelico and Cadore. He’ll will be present at all stages.

He was born in San Pietro di Cadore and he continues to live in his native land. Nicknamed “Grillo” (cricket) for his way of skiing, he’s now promoting the beer brewed in Cadore by his son and called “La Birra del Grillo”.

Comelico is a mountainous region of northeast Italy (province of Belluno), 140 km far from Venice Airport. The main village in Comelico is Santo Stefano di Cadore located at the junction of the Piave and the Padola rivers. The other villages included in this region are San Pietro di Cadore, Comelico Superiore and Danta di Cadore, all of which are part of the province of Belluno in the Veneto Region. 2 stages will be organized in Comelico (Padola)

Cadore is a historical region in the Italian region of Veneto, in the northernmost part of the province of Belluno bordering on Austria, the Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. It is watered by the Piave River which

has its source in the Carnic Alps. Once an undeveloped and poor district, the former contado (countship) of Cadore now has a thriving economy based on tourism and a small manufacturing industry, specialising in the production of glasses. 3 stages will be organized in Cadore (one in Auronzo and 2 near the lake of Misurina / 3 cime di Lavaredo)

Lake Misurina  is the largest natural lake of the Cadore and it is 1,754 m above sea level, near Auronzo di Cadore (Belluno). The lake’s perimeter is 2.6 km long, while the maximum depth is 5 m.

Lake Misurina is where the speed skating events were held during the 1956 Winter Olympics of Cortina d’Ampezzo – the last time Olympic speed skating events were held on natural ice.

The Tre Cime di Lavaredo also called the Drei Zinnen are three distinctive battlement-like peaks, in the Sexten Dolomites of northeastern Italy. They are probably one of the best-known mountain groups in the Alps. The three peaks, from east to west, are:

Cima Piccola / Kleine Zinne (“little peak”)
Cima Grande / Große Zinne (“big peak”)
Cima Ovest / Westliche Zinne (“western peak”).
The Cima Grande has an elevation of 2,999 metres. It stands between the Cima Piccola, at 2,857 metres and the Cima Ovest, at 2,973 metres (9,754 ft).

Nearby communities include Auronzo di Cadore (in the province of Belluno, region of Veneto), Toblach/Dobbiaco, Sexten/Sesto, and the Puster Valley (in the province of Bolzano, region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol).
