Background

In the dolomitic area of Trentino, Alto adige (sudtirol) and Veneto as well as in Friuli live the last persons that descend from the first inhabitants of the Alps.
These were once called Rhaeti. We don't really know if they were indoeuropeans or non-indoeuropeans people but the genetic studies could give us an answer.
They are now known as "ladini" or "retoromanci" with an own language, tradition and myth.
The project is open to the ladin people from the dolomitic area  and close countries.
Between the most ancient ancestors there are Oetzi and the man from Mondeval.
