Between 1988 and 1992, the Porchabella Glacier released the remains of a glacial corpse and parts of its equipment. After viewing all relics, it became clear in 1992 that these are the mortal remains of the only historical, female glacier corpse in Graubünden to date. Subsequent research revealed that the woman, who was between 20 and 25 years old, had an accident around 1700. What story could be hidden behind it? Inspired by the find, Andreas Ulich has written the exciting travelling radio play "Porchabella – the Bird Freedom" on behalf of Parc Ela, in which one immerses oneself in the gripping story of the young woman.
This event is part of the Parc Ela summer series "Scazis da tera", which invites locals and guests to take a look underground. In partnership with the Archaeological Service graubünden, we are on the road with researchers in the Parc Ela this year to discover our history stored in the ground. Learn what it looked like a long time ago in Parc Ela and what treasures can still be recovered today.
