The Path of Tracciolino

read the post
The "Tracciolino" is a small piece of art that has no equal in the Alps, whose construction dates back to the thirties. Bridges and tunnels in the mountains, often bravely constructed on overhanging rocks, to allow small wagons to bring men and material from the dam in Val dei Ratti to the outlet in Val Codera.
