Lancia Mountain Refuge Cabin, a place where nature has ennobled the places of the Great War

We insert it with knowledge in our First World War front line refuge cabins. Some refuge cabins in the lower Trento province area were in fact the protagonists of the period in which the front line between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire divided souls, families and traditions for unfortunate national objectives. Planning or just dreaming of excursions to remember and retrace the places of the fighting is an indelible sign of a wish that conflicts of this nature may never happen again. These aren’t so much proposals for itineraries from refuge to refuge, but these are day trips on paths that run alongside forts, penetrate trenches, enter tunnels and fortified gun emplacements up to the battlefields.
