thank you for this very beautyful picture!
the hut in the forcella sasso lungo was built by my grandfather, giovanni demetz. he was a mountain guide and so was his first son toni demetz. unfortunately toni lost his life in 1952, when he was only 20 years old on the sassolungo where he was hit by a thunder together with 2 german turists. it was his own father who found him lying dead, and who chose to leave his sons body there in order to save one of the germans who was still alive.
from the italian regime, giovanni demetz got a license to build a hut as a sign of gratefulness, for his efforts in saving peoples lifes. This had been his greatest dream since ever and he dedicated it to his son toni demetz. Today the hut is still there with all it's charme, embraced by the magnificence of the sassolungo group!
you can find a short article written in italian: "LA SCELTA DI HANS" http://terrealte.blogspot.com/2007_11_01_archive.html
è molto interessante vedere come con il passare degli anni la storia possa cambiare nel ricordo della gente. la versione nel link da me segnalato non é la versione che conosco io... è la stessa storia ma cambiano i dettagli...
I guess it must be the safest place to install a high mountain refuge.
