Useful Information


For the first time, coming together from all over Europe, we are organising a holiday in the Dolomite mountains. We do this in order to return to the experience of the first Mariapolis, inspired by the charism of unity, which took place there seventy years ago. The program will consist of hikes and outings, sports, games, music, moments of spirituality and prayer, creative workshops and theme-based discussion groups.

Children and young people
may only participate with their families or accompanied by an adult who assumes responsibility for them. There will be some moments of parallel programs adapted for children during the event.

For the entire 4 weeks, we will offer translation in the following languages during the main program:

  • 1st week (14-21 July): Italian, English, Slovenian, Czech, French
  • 2nd week (21-28 July): Italian, English, German, Croatian, Polish, Dutch
  • 3rd week (28 July-4 August): Italian, English, Russian, Slovakian, Lithuanian, Portuguese
  • 4th week (4-11 August): Italian, English, German, Hungarian, Romanian, Spanish
