In the mid-sixties, when Ezio Alimonta and his father Gilio, both mountain guides, came down from the Brenta and arrived at the foot of the Vedretta degli Sfulmini glacier, they looked at each other and said: a refuge is needed here, so mountaineers can have a roof over their heads as close to the mountains as possible. They chose the right place, in one of the Brenta’s most majestic settings, and a few years later - in 1968 - the refuge was inaugurated, and it is still, after a series of enlargements, run by the family of mountaineers whose name it bears. This refuge is a base for the Via delle Bocchette via ferrata, and is so close to the rocks that it’s easy to dream of being an mountaineer.
From 17 June to 25 September
