Traditional villages and “clapadòrie”

Traditional villages and "clapadòrie"

After World War II, the trend of emigration and depopulation increased and accelerated with the 1976 earthquake. The tragic event risked wiping out many traces of the past, but careful recovery and restoration work was carried out to restore the local urban identity. Particularly in the villages of Gerchia, Tascans and Zuanes, masonry dwellings with external stairways and wooden balconies have been restored.

What also makes the urban landscape of Clauzetto suggestive are the ancient stone-paved streets, called clapadòrie, true works of art that cross the hamlets and courtyards.

The Church of San Rocco

Outside the inhabited centre, on the road leading to the Ravedis narrows, is the Church of San Rocco, surrounded by the cemetery. This space has been dedicated to religious worship for centuries: not far away, in fact, a small votive altar from the 1st century B.C., dedicated to the river deity Temavus, was found.
