Angelo Mosso Scientific Institute

Angelo Mosso Institute is a research center at 2.901 meters of altitude. Angelo Mosso is its creator, professor of Physiology at the University of Turin from 1879 to 1910. The Institute was inaugurated in 1907, with the aim of supporting the activities of the Regina Margherita Hut, and provided support to scholars. Here they could also stay for long periods while conducting their research activities. It soon began to be visited by researchers from all over the world, and hosted important studies in physiology, geology, glaciology and meteorology. In 2000 a fire almost completely destroyed the structure, but the reconstruction was rapid and largely supported by funds of national and international origin. n 2006 the works were completed, bringing it back into activity until today.

The Institute is open all summer with free guided tours!
