You then reach Valpelline, one of the villages that produces matured Fontina in a store found in the old copper mines. From here you can reach Ollomont, in the heart of a green and sunny, side hollow, which is rich in Alpine pastures, lakes and glaciers. Ollomont Valley has been a crossing point ever since the period of the Celtic Salassi, who used to trade with the people in Vallese. Calvino passed through here when he sought refuge in Switzerland and Luigi Einaudi, the future president of the Italian Republic, also escaped via this route. In July, Ollomont hosts the “Fëta à l’Ano” (Donkey Festival) where you can try some tasty donkey-meat dishes and see the traditional Donkey race.
