Description

Set on the northern slope of the Orobic Alps, within the Orobie Valtellinesi National Park, the Pedroria and Madrera Alps afford panoramic views that encompass 200 hectares of untainted pastureland and woodland, reaching all the way to the unstable terrain of the higher altitudes. The mountain huts – which provide the backdrop to the seasonal work of the cattlemen who, to this day, drive their herds up to them – are equipped with stables and cheese-making rooms, and feature typical dry-stone walls, which seem to protect the huts from the summits of Mount Pisello, Mount Culino and Mount Lago that loom over the mountain pastures. Numerous hiker-friendly paths make their way through a wide variety of natural habitats in which the spruce fir is the most abundant species; these habitats also play host to several species of Alpine fauna. After many years of working with FAI, as Chief of the Sondrio Delegation and Director of Works on the restoration of Masino Castle, architect Stefano Tirinzoni, who passed away prematurely, bequeathed these precious encapsulations of ancient mountain traditions to the Trust.
