Mount Zugna is located south of Rovereto and is a mountain of great historical, geological and naturalistic interest. In fact, on its slopes it preserves the largest deposit of dinosaur fossil footprints ever found in Italy, with traces of carnivorous and herbivorous dinosaurs from the Jurassic period. Near the refuge there is an important astronomical observatory; the botanical and faunal aspects are also of considerable interest. From a historical point of view, it played a fundamental role in the history of the First World War on the Italian-Austrian front.
