The Arzino between pools and waterfalls

The Arzino between pools and waterfalls

The Arzino stream is one of the last Alpine watercourses to retain a high degree of naturalness. Its 28 km are almost entirely included in the municipality of Vito d’Asio. It rises at the foot of Mount Teglara, in the locality of Fontanon, and crosses the Val di Preone with a series of spectacular waterfalls, flanked by a path that is easy to follow on foot (just be careful not to slip – sentiero delle cascate).

The stream, which is still wedged in the valley, flows past the village of Pozzis and opens out at San Francesco. It collects a number of lateral tributaries and widens out into the splendid Curnila pools, which have now become a popular bathing spot (they were also mentioned by the Financial Times as one of the best places for wild swimming). The Arzino picks up speed with the gradient, slowing down at Casiacco, before flowing into the Tagliamento at the Stretta di Pinzano.

Montereale Valcellina

Pellegrin’s roiello

Running water was brought to San Leonardo Valcellina in 1837 thanks to the intuition of a local farmer, Giovanni Antonio Dell’Angelo, known as Pellegrin. Before that there was the “lagoon”, a stagnant and unhealthy pool, fed by the rains, in the centre of the square.

The area in which Montereale Valcellina stands has been inhabited for at least three thousand years: the oldest evidence of human settlements dates back to the 14th century B.C., the so-called Bronze Age. Some swords that have re-emerged from the gravel of the Cellina date back to this period, perhaps of a votive nature, linked to the cult of the torrent or of a deity linked to water.
