The event sees the participation of 150 athletes from 48 nations. The event includes 2 days dedicated to the opening and closing ceremonies and 13 days of actual competition. The main locations of the activities will be Monte Avena and the Dolomite and pre-Alpine range of Valbelluna, but some specialties will see athletes compete in the skies of some areas of the nearby Friuli and Trentino, involving the entire Veneto foothills from Caltrano (VI) to Aviano (PN) and part of the Trentino ridge that overlooks Valsugana up to Levico.

A spectacle of sport and breathtaking views, framed between the UNESCO Dolomites and the Venetian lagoon that, on clear days, we will be able to see on the horizon. An unmissable event.
