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.

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.
