Neviera del Guardiabella

An unusual, huge snow pit

Monte Guardiabella, the last mid-mountain meadow area where haymaking is still practiced, houses a uniquely shaped lneviera”: instead of being completely excavated in the ground, this is largely above ground, insulated by a series of concentric terraces of gradually increasing thickness approaching the base.
This snow pit, whose construction has been lost over the centuries, had to be of great importance: in a historical map resulting from a survey of the Corpo di Stato (General Staff), carried out from 1827 to 1829, the area is referred to as Passo della Nevea.
