Geocache Description:


Altare, Festung
Altare liegt in einer dünnbesiedelten Hügel- und Berglandschaft, und ist bekannt für die traditionelle Glasproduktion. Im Glasmuseum (siehe Link) sind etwa 300 Kunstwerke vom vorletzten Jahrhundert ausgestellt. Die Festungen wurden ab 1881 aus strategischen Gründen als wichtige Barriere zwischen Appenin und Alpen gebaut.

Altare, Fortezza
Il Museo dell’Arte Vetraria Altarese, nato all’interno della S.A.V. quale museo d’azienda, oggi è ospitato nelle sale di Villa Rosa ed offre ai suoi visitatori una rassegna di opere che vanno dal 1650 ai giorni nostri, oltre ad attrezzi e stampi per la lavorazione artigianale.
La fortificazione edificata per motivi strategici fra 1881, tra i confine degli Appenini e l’inizio della catena montuosa Alpi, prende questo nome per significare lo sbarramento del valico che già in tempi remoti costituì un’importante passaggio per le truppe Francesi comandate da Napoleone alla conquista dell’Europa.
