‘We want cars out of the Dolomites.' This announcement did not come from environmentalists or local nature lovers: it came from the president of the Trentino region, Lorenzo Dellai. Politicians in Trentino are currently discussing ways to make tourism in the world-famous Dolomites even ‘greener' and a lobby has formed to limit cars during the summer months.
‘The territories that make courageous decisions in terms of alternative forms of transportation will create for themselves a new future made of high-quality tourism; the others will have to live with whatever tourism they get,' said Dellai. He proposes a ban on pollution-causing motor vehicles at high altitudes one or two days a week in the summer months to keep the area clean and green.
