Defending the border with France
Right after the annexation of the County of Nice to France, the Colle di Tenda found itself in a delicate border position. For this reason the Regio Esercito opted in 1881 for the construction of a fort which ended in 1885.
In 1947 it passed to France with the Paris Peace Treaties.
