A bold outpost built in 1938 with enormous sacrifice by Conegliano Italian Alpin Club Section CAI at Pian di Tenda , on the steep slopes below the highest summit of the Civetta.

More than end in itself acts as a vital foothold for mountaineers strongly committed on north-west wall of the Civetta peak, but more frequently for those who climb to the top through the Ferrata of Alleghesi or the Normal route. It considered that this is the only foothold on the extreme cliffs next to the top of the Civetta.

Maintained with love and dedication by Venturino De Bona, without a doubt one of the most knowledgeable of Civetta Moiazza well as author with Piero Bez of the famous Via Nuvole barocche to Civetta  in 1999, a true masterpiece in terms of climbing for beauty, harmony and difficulties. Refuge Torrani  is a place of welcoming, equipped with unexpected comfort for a logistics center so far away and inaccessible, and  an inexhaustible source of information to discover the secrets of the Group Civetta -Moiazza.
