On Thursday 18th October 2018 this via ferrata will be inaugurated in the presence of the Commander of the Italian Alpine Troops, of the mayors of Cortina d’Ampezzo, Gianpietro Ghedina, and Livinallongo, Leandro Grones, of the president of the Regole d’Ampezzo, of representatives of the Martini Ridge-Lagazuoi Committee, of the Association of the Italian Mountain Troops Alpini (ANA), the Italian Alpine Association CAI and the Italian mountain rescue service.
