It was a group of mountaineering friends and partisans of "Giustizia e Libertà" who, with their families, wanted to take on
the initiative to remember with the construction of a refuge the Cuneo avv. Dante Livio Bianco, strong mountaineer,
appreciated jurist and valiant partisan commander. The new refuge was inaugurated on 18 September 1883.
A few meters from Lake Sottano della Sella which, with its brother Soprano, is the largest natural basin in the Maritime Alps stands the refuge.
The mountains around it are able to satisfy the expert mountaineer, the hiker and the day tripper who will be enraptured by the splendid panorama.

The refuge is located at an altitude of 1910 m. in the upper Vallone della Meris, on the eastern shore of Lake Sottano della Sella, at the foot of the northern slope of Monte Matto.
