Valico del Rafut

The Allies were often intransigent when in 1947 they defined the border line in chalk. At the end of via Rafut, the border line, which runs parallel to the railroad tracks near the Transalpine, harshly divided a community which was nationally and linguistically mixed. In some cases, the line separated houses from fields, barns and stables to which they were connected.

Many people found themselves having to leave their properties behind when they chose one country ahead of the other. Only after the Treaty of Osimo in 1975 was it possible to slightly modify the line and re-join the properties that had been previously divided.
