It is dedicated to Antonio Carestia from Riva, a botanist-Alpinist, famous world-wide, who was very fond of this valley.

Mont Rosa is the beginning and continuity of the history of Alagna,the small Walser village clinging to its southern wall. The refuges of Monte Rosa (Capanna Margherita, Capanna Gnifetti, Refuge Vigevano, Refuge Pastore, Refuge Carestia and Refuge Barba Ferrero) are all part of its history and Alpine tradition and are the proud results of those who wanted and managed them for more than 100 years
