Fort Strino and the white War - Forte Strino, past Vermiglio on the way up to Tonale, reminds the outbreak of the First World War. Val di Sole and Trentino were at that moment obedient subject to Franz Joseph, the moustached emperor of Austria and King of Hungary. In May 1915, Val di Sole, as other boarderline areas, became involved in the conflict. The roar of cannons was heard among the glaciers of Presena, S. Matteo and Cevedale. Historians called these fights among rocks and glaciers the "white war". There are still many other forts near Tonale and Peio, which were built to protect strategic passageways. Forte Strino has been restored and it is now possible to visit it. Part of the fort is used to house a permanent exhibition of remains, uniforms, photographs, as well as information boards about the most tragic event ever lived by the people in Val di Sole. The small White War Museum in Vermiglio is also worth a visit.
At Val di Sole, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, mountain chalets, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
