Lavin im Sommer
Italianita engiadinaisa and openness


We get off the train, walk towards the cheese factory and bakery to the spacious village square. Striking mountains and dancing swallows in the deep blue sky are reflected in the windows of the palazzo-like houses and we think of a piazza in old Milan. A mountain biker rings the bell and waves to the hotel terrace. Tired and enthusiastic about a long day on the national park hike "Lais da Macun", we sit down for a convivial round of craftsmen, farmers, guests and hosts. The village of 213 inhabitants impresses with a rich cultural offer and extremely innovative inhabitants. Its reconstruction after the great fire of 1869 has given the Engadine village Italian features – also in the form of joie de vivre and cosmopolitanism. This is Lavin: Italianità Engiadinaisa.
