THE LARGEST ALPINE GLACIER

This glacier is spread between Lombardy and Trentino-Alto Adige. It is by far the largest of the Italian glaciers, and lies between 2550m and 3530m asl. In the land registry of 1961 was divided into 6 units the names of which are, Miller Superiore, Corno Salarno, Salarno, Adamello or Pian di Neve, and Mandrone. (see foto)

It is generally considered a glacier of the Scandinavian type, with a large flat central mass, out of which different strip derive. At the end of the19th century the surface area was over 3000 hectares, whilst last century during the 20s it had reduced to 2500 hectares. Re-measured in 1997 the figure had changed to 1766 hectares.
