Alta Valsusa, in spring the Saracen gallery reopens

A few years ago, on these pages, I would recite the de profundis for the Seguret gallery (or the Saracens) and the military route 79 of the Pramand. It had just been closed to transit by the Turin Military Engineers Command, because it threatened to crash, with serious damage to the transit of cars, motorcycles or pedestrians.

Thus protecting itself from any responsibility.
