The shelter Levi Molinari is located in Piedmont, in the high part of Val di Susa, about 80 km away from Turin. Its part of the municipality of Exilles – hamlet Grange della Valle – and is at 1850 m altitude. It is situated in the basin of river Galambra that opens unexpected to the eyes of visitors, leaving Val di Susa in the most narrow and wildest point; here the valley is dominated by Mount Niblè (3365 m) and Mount Ambin (3264 m) which still hides the last glaciers, creating a “magic” place inside a Park where there is an integral preservation of the incredible variety of animal species that populates the Alps.
The Shelter belongs to C.A.I. (Italian Alpine Club) Turin and was assigned for management to Tiziana Di Martino and Marco Pozzi, working partners and a couple…. infact in 2002 their son Didier was born and nowadays is an active and expert guide of the Park surroundings.
[riquadro a destra] IN ANY PROFESSIONAL CURRICULUM WE WOULD QUALIFY OURSELVES AS NATURALISTIC GUIDES, BUT WORKING IN AN ALPINE SHELTER TURN ANYBODY INTO A COOK, CONFECTIONER, LOCAL PRODUCTS AS WELL AS HISTORY AND HABITS EXPERT OF THE VALLEY.
As Naturalistic Guides we collaborate with the Park of Gran Bosco di Salbertrand organising trekking and stays, while as professional Educators we bring on the mountains and around them people with motoric or psychic disabilities. We like to think that a Shelter is a territory safeguard and it has to give opportunities to discover a thousand wonderful landscapes that mountains can offer us. We invite you to come and discover our culinary proposals too!!
“The true discovery journey doesn’t consist of finding new lands but finding new eyes to watch them”.
