The Project

As part of the initiative to trace the "Gran Panorama" alpine path, which runs along the Swiss-Italian border between Pizzo Tambo and Pizzo Gesero in the Mesolcina Valley, the Gruppo Sentieri delle Cime has built a first bivouac in the Curciusa Valley in the municipality of Mesocco. The presence of a bivouac in Curciusa is intended as an incentive for families with children to visit the alpine trails in the area.

The Curciusa hut is located at approx. 2,400 m above sea level, and was built in wood. The capacity of the building is 11 fixed beds, with the possibility of extending them to 15 in case of needs. A small kitchen has also been built for the use of hikers to prepare their the hikers for the preparation of hot meals. The structure, in the shape of a "Toblerone", is based on the executive system of similar huts already built in the area, such as the Piz Pian Grand refuge. The particular shape recalls the contours of the surrounding mountains and the building fits into the territory with minimal impact on the territory.
