Arrangement > Historical Museum Forte di Punta Corbin

HISTORICAL MUSEUM FORTE DI PUNTA CORBIN The fort of Punta Corbin was part of the Italian forts that were forming the line of defence on the pre-alps at the north of Vicenza during the first world war. After the war, it has been restored and a museum has been built, that collects many testimonies of the Great War. 
 
Located at the western end of the Altopiano dei 7 Comuni, not far away from Mount Cengio and the center of the village Tresche’ Conca, the fort of Punta Corbin was part of the Italian forts that were forming the line of defence of the Italian army on the pre-alps at the north of the city of Vicenza.
Its construction dates back in 1906 on the top of a cliff facing down to the Valley of the river Astico and its purpose was to provide the valley with an appropriate defence against an eventual Austro-Hungarian invasion. Even though it was designed to be one of the more powerful forts on the Altopiano, its role during the war was only marginal.
After only a few months from the beginning of the conflict, Fort Corbin, as all the other forts on the plateau, was stripped of its guns and became ineffectual.
The historical war museum of Fort Corbin attracts a huge number of visitors, tourists and school children, who can visit the whole site with the help of a site map and a written guide or with the assistance of a guide. The museum is inside the structure and there are the exhibits found during the cleaning operations: they are duly catalogued and described with the addition of photographs of the era and with documents kindly donated by people. A visit to Fort Corbin comprises two parts, the first being a practical visit of the whole site and the second a more “intellectual” one, with the observation of images and objects related to the first world war.

Roana is certainly the most heterogeneous among the municipalities of the Altopiano dei 7 Comuni. It consists in fact of 6 localities, also called “bell towers” because each village has its own parish church. These small towns are: Camporovere, Canove, Cesuna, Mezzaselva,  Roana and Tresché Conca.
Only a few kilometers separate the 6 suburbs from each other, so it is easy to walk or bike between one village to the other, even going alternative routes, forests and meadows.
From any village, unique landscapes and breathtaking views go far beyond the edges of the Altopiano, and the visitor can easily see, when the sky is clear, even the Dolomites and the Venice lagoon in the distance.
Roana's territory is largely covered by forests, fields, pastures and gentle slopes, and the average altitude of the villages is about 1000 metres above sea level; this makes Roana (along with the other municipalities of the Altopiano) the perfect destination for a relaxing mountain holiday.  
The sweetness of the mountain profiles, the fresh air and the endless green invite to spend the day outdoor, in a peaceful environment, where the good climate and the magical colors throughout the four seasons of the year make the tourist feel in peace.
Roana can offer a high level of accommodation and a great network of sports choices, from football and volleyball to tennis, from ice skating or summer-skating to orienteering, from swimming to hiking trees and mountains, not to mention the hundreds of kilometers practicable in summer by bike and in winter skiing and finally a little lake suitable for swimming.
History has left thousands traces during the flow of time: from the prehistory, with the Valdassa graffiti, to the years of the Venetian Republic, when the whole Altopiano was an autonomous federation inhabited by the “Cimbri”, a germanic population that settled down and built villages; from the first world war, when entire villages were destroyed and many forts and trenches were built to fight the Austro-Hungarian enemy, to the years of reconstruction and tourism and agriculture development.
Even the enogastronomic perspective is rich in the Roana surroundings: mountains host tens of alpine huts, where chees is still produced, as long as many other local products, and the lands offer little fruits, mushrooms and herbs in plenty.
Every inch of the territory of Roana and the other seven municipalities is rich in history, culture and local traditions. Many festivals (such as the Hoga Zait) and celebrations are organized in order to preserve the ancient way of life and to show visitors how the strong population of the Altopiano used to live, never forgetting its own roots and its identity.
