The farm was rebuilt after being destroyed by a snow slide in the 80’s. A large colony of groundhogs has settled on the pastures extending from the hut to the Marinelli shelter. The Marinelli shelter was built in 1901 and was dedicated to Giovanni Marinelli, a geologist and the first chairman of the Friulian Alpine Society (SAF) and to his son Olinto, himself a SAF chairman.
