Google translate does a relatively good job here:

 

Dolomites: the most beautiful mountains in the world. Peaks, valleys, forests, glades, mountain passes, streams, waterfalls, villages that seem nativity: a magical universe - green in summer and winter white - in any season, at dusk when the sun kisses the rocks closer to heaven , undergoes the phenomenon of ´enrosarida ", one that turns pink sides and peaks of the Dolomite mountains. E ´in this magic of nature that stretches one of the valleys most exciting, the Fassa, whose capital is Moena, dubbed "the fairy of the Dolomites". This is a small village at 1184 meters high, surrounded by six villages (Oven, Medil, Penia, Someda, Sorte, piece) and dominated by the imposing range of mountains on the left Latemar, right by the no less fascinating and Monzoni Alpe di Lusia. Gently lying in a basin, Moena is now an internationally renowned resort hosts every year in its hotels tens of thousands of people attracted by the beauty of the place and the entire valley.
Moena TurcoUn during the feast of heaven, to Moena, bathed in Avisio, Peniola the canal and Rio San Pellegrino, inhabited by the ancient and noble Ladin people whose kindness is the soul of hospitality, and features presence within the town, an unexpected details and therefore doubly surprising: the "Rione Turkey" which seems owes its name to a turkish disbanded in the aftermath of the siege of Vienna by the Ottomans. Dr. Maria Piccolino, librarian of the Municipality of Moena, explains that several historians and students of local traditions have been trying to find the origin of such an unusual and intriguing place name. The conclusions, however, are rather conflicting, some suggesting a derivation from "Torchia" That is the place where you twist the linen, others saw it to the letter, reminiscent of the legend of the turkish soldier.
Moena during the festival TurcoQuesto character, so dear to the collective image of the inhabitants of Moena, was one of some three hundred thousand soldiers of the Turkish siege in 1683 for the second time the Austrian capital (the first siege goes back to 1529). Legend has it that he was captured, but later escaped from captivity of the imperialists and that, after long wanderings and many adventures, came to Moena now exhausted, where he was generously. Impressed and heartfelt altruism of local people, turkish decided to stop in the charming village and went to live at that district, then called generically Ischiazza "(place name common to the whole Trentino indicate a swampy place).
MoenaI historical documents of the Municipality of Moena - precise yet Dr Maria Piccolino - many already in the eighteenth century, mentioning for the first time the name "Turkish" in 1827, while the form "Turkey" is his first appeared in 1861 in 1876 refers to "Contrada said Turkey." The fact remains that, walking through the streets and alleys of the district, vacationers and tourists remain stunned to find themselves facing a public fountain surmounted by the image of a turkish, complete with beard, turban and crescent. Or to see the street sign that signals via Damiano Chiesa, with the addition of the word "Turkey". Or the surprise among the frescoes that adorn the facades of houses, a painting depicting a sultan with servants and wives, and another where you see a couple on a Turkish carpet, surrounded by lush palms.
But not all. The tradition of "Turkishness" is so strong that the inhabitants of the district that honor in various ways. There is a folk parade, held during the carnival, sultans and haremine Janissaries, a riot of sounds, costumes and colors in which you want to renew the memory of the legendary origins of the neighborhood. Local women turn into Turkish women with their faces covered with veils, baggy pants and slippers with upturned toes, the men become sultans, viziers, soldiers and show off costumes, at least in intention, echo those fellow founder of the ancient district of Turkey.
Moena during the feast of TurcoC´è then, says Dr Piccolino, the practice of "enough" which is typical of the whole valley of Fassa Ladin. And that is this: the groom "forest" (this is enough to qualify that he is also a district other than the spouse) can not leave the house of the bride (here we use the bridegroom, with his relatives, he go to the bride´s home to start and then the two together in procession to the church) before paying a "toll" substantial, as is traditional, to food and drink symbolizing the "bride price". Each country plays each ward Fassa is to your liking, this old custom: Turkey in the neighborhood this is, of course, "Turkish".
