    Managing a refuge in the Apennines may seem simple, but it is not. In this story we come into contact with the managers of the Duca degli Abruzzi Refuge in an "ordinary" winter weekend: appennino.netlify.app/vita-da-rifugio

    The Duca degli Abruzzi refuge was the first alpine refuge built on the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, more precisely on the shores of Lake Scaffaiolo.
    It was inaugurated on 30 June 1878 thanks to the joint initiative of the CAI of Florence and that of Bologna. On 23 August 1902 it was rebuilt again and dedicated to Prince Louis of Savoy, Duke of the Abruzzi. Due to the climate, war and vandalism, the refuge was rebuilt three times, on 17 September 1911, 29 August 1926 and in the summer of 1965, when it was built in yellow painted sheet metal. On 30 September 2001 the new Duca degli Abruzzi hut was inaugurated, in masonry, with a much better visual impact than the previous one.
