“Neviera” of Pizzo d’Evigno

Preserving ice all year round

The “neviere” were huge wells with thick walls, capable of cramming and storing large quantities of snow, during the period known as “the Little Ice Age”, from the mid-14th to the mid-19th century.
This neviera, one of the three found around the peak of Pizzo d’Evigno, has unfortunately completely collapsed and filled with stones. However, some perimeter walls are still visible.
The type of construction is also found elsewhere, with remarkable specimens on Mount Neveia above Taggia and on the slopes of Monte Guardiabella.
