The "Ceci" Ciappo

Ciappo dei Ceci
Ciappo dei Ceci

The “Ceci” Ciappo (stone) of is made of porous limestone, located on Bric Spaventaggi. On its surface (about 300 square meters) there are old cruciform incisions, writtens made during the last centuries and a system of small channels connecting trays and cups, a real rudimentary system for collecting rainwater for watering animals and for attracting preys for hunting.

These numerous recordings, similar to those found further northwards on the “Conche” Ciappo, testify the intense and frequent presence of men starting from the prehistoric times.
