Livinallongo del Col di Lana (Ladin Fodom, German Buchenstein) is a municipality in the Italian province of Belluno, Veneto. The municipality covers the entire Buchensteintal; this explains its size of 99 square kilometers with only 1300 inhabitants (as of 31 December 2017).
In the east of the community is the partially defeated in the Dolomite War Col di Lana. In the west, the municipality is bounded by the Alpine Pass Pordoijoch and in the north by the Campolongo Pass.
Buchenstein was first mentioned in documents in 1027.
Between 1897 and 1900, the fortresses of La Corte, Ruaz (demolished) and Tra i sassi (Valparolapass) were built by the Austrians. Until the end of the First World War, the area belonged to Austria-Hungary as part of Tyrol. In 1915, the area was evacuated in the war and the places that were in the combat area on the Austrian-Italian border, heavily destroyed. The Treaty of Saint-Germain Livinallongo came together with South Tyrol to Italy and was incorporated in 1923 the province of Belluno. In 1933 Benito Mussolini had the suffix "del Col di Lana", which was confirmed in 1983 by the Veneto region arranged municipal referendum.
