For centuries the Dolomites have fascinated researchers from all over the world for their uniqueness. Geologists, peleontologists and collectors return on the traces of the ciphered past in the attempt to unveil the mistery of those worlds. The mountain's enormous folds are witness to the modelling work of titanic forces that have acted for millions of years. Erosion has brought them to light layer after layer, like the pages of a great book. The documentary tells the fascinating story of the discovery of the Dolomites and highlights how even now in the Bahamas and in the Sinai desert the same geologic factors that engendered the Dolomitesare still at work.
