Alpine environments of unparalleled beauty?
A paradise for nature lovers.
An invaluable and non-renewable resource.
Alpe Devero is the heart of an enchanting and grandiose alpine region, protected for its landscape and biodiversity; without access to cars, frequented summer and winter by those who love spaces and nature without infrastructure.
However, landscape, biodiversity and beauty are under attack: projects for new lifts, ski and mountain bike slopes, roads, hotels, bars and accommodation facilities follow one after the other: consumption of trees and soil, water reservoirs, artificial snow, damage to the delicate and irreplaceable environment.
A large project called "Avvicinare le montagne" was proposed to transform this "unicum" in the Alps into a large summer-winter tourist area. After five years, in December 2022, "Avvicinare le montagne", which failed to pass the Environmental Impact Assessment, was withdrawn. Here is the press release "Avvicinare le Montagne si è ritirato, ma la partita non è finita".
But the threats continue: there are numerous projects changing the characters of this precious natural environment.
To protect the Devero and its territory, the Devero Protection Committee was formed, gathering the support of a wide network of collaborators and more than 125,000 supporters to its cause.
