Dolomite’s Fire returns after an off-year: the thrilling torchlight procession, in the Guinness World Record since 2011, supports no-profit organization Magica Cleme Onlus and the kids with cancer. On the occasion, the five historical FIS World Cup Committees will meet in Madonna di Campiglio
Dolomite’s Fire, the now-classic torchlight procession on the Dolomites that will return on Madonna di Campiglio's slopes and streets on Saturday March 12th, is not, and will never be, just any mountain procession.
The firelight flowing through Madonna di Campiglio’s arteries is just the starting point of an event created in 2009, from an idea of Mario Zanon, and grown in the years, breaking into the Guinness World Record in 2011 as the biggest torchlight procession in the World (and still holdling the record).
The importance of Dolomite’s Fire goes well beyond the attendance numbers, with thousands of people and torches of every side on Madonna di Campiglio. Indeed, Dolomite’s Fire has joined the mission of no-profit association Magica Cleme Onlus (www.magicacleme.org), supporting children with cancer and their families.
These children will be in the very core of the Dolomite’s Fire experience: “We want Magica Cleme’s children to live a unique experience – Dolomite’s Fire inventor Mario Zanon said. “Magica Cleme works to make these “little heroes” and their families live a dream, making them the protagonists of a fairytale. We feel proud to support them, as we hope many other people will do. Several personalities of TV – thanks to Marco Manfredi and the friends from Mediaset – showbiz and sports will also come to Madonna di Campiglio to endorse Magica Cleme, and make it an unforgettable night.”
The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup will also be in the spotlight at Dolomite’s Fire, after welcoming Madonna di Campiglio and the 3Tre slalom back as permanent fixture in 2015. In fact, Audi - FIS World Cup’s main sponsor and Madonna di Campiglio-Pinzolo-Val Rendena’s strategic partner – joins the board of the friends of Dolomites’ Fire, and some other special guests are also expected on March 12th in Madonna di Campiglio.
In the view of the 50th anniversary of the FIS World Cup, happening in the 2016-2017 season, the Organizing Committees of the five historical World Cup events that were also part of the first ever World Cup - Vail (USA), Wengen and Adelboden (Switzerland), Kitzbühel (Austria) and Madonna di Campiglio – will all gather in the home of 3Tre.
Dolomite’s Fire, an event organized by the 3Tre Committee, will provide a special surrounding to this historical meeting: each side of the parade will be dedicated to one of the five committees, who will eventually reunite in the heart of the town: a symbolic moment to give the start to an year of celebration for the FIS World Cup.
