On June 26, 2009, the Executive Committee of the UNESCO Convention on the Material Heritage of Humanity, gathered in Seville, declared the Dolomites a World Heritage Site thanks to their beauty and scenic uniqueness. Nine dolomite groups make up this extraordinary "natural archipelago". Four officially recognized languages are spoken: Italian, German, Ladino, Friulano.
