    This was a battleground during WW I. My spouse visited the Italian Alps (think included this area) when sent on a “study session” to explore the Pyrenees and the Alps for rocks (and, incidentally, to check same for wine and calamari). My spouse – a true geologist – did actually study the rocks (geologists are NOT like normal people). But also noted – in Italy – the remains of the WW I battlefields. In particular, mentioned one mountain top where the Austrians were entrenched but the Italians tunneled in from below and eventually blew up the whole top.
