Malesco, between history and geology

Visit the Ecomuseum in Malesco, in the Vigezzo Valley, and stroll through the gates of the Val Grande National Park.

The Ecomuseum of Soapstone and Stonecutters hosts all of the cultural, traditional and environmental heritage of the Malesco region and its communities. The Ecomuseum looks after the three museum buildings, the Archaeological and Geological Museum, Zornasco’s Mill and the historic wash house. A climb from Malesco to the Loana Valley takes you to the gates of the Val Grande National Park.
