Location: Borgata Maison, Noasca (TO)
Tel: 0124-901070 (Piedmont side touristic secretary)
Opening hours: reservation required, call for information.
The building and the classroom of the Borgata Maison primary school, active until 1962, were restored via the recovery of the furnishings and materials in use at the time, including the preparation of the bedroom where the teacher used to stay during the school period. The school is located at a height of approximately 1600 m., on the mule-track of the Vallone del Roc, which is one of the most interesting itineraries on the Piedmont side of the Park, reaching a number of villages of great historical and scenic value, as well as passing through an area of natural merit. The Park Body carried out the intervention between 1999 and 2000, with the aim of preserving basic cultural values for the environmental education of the visitors. The school is visible from the path, but it is necessary to book a guided tour to enter and admire the inside.

The exhibit is temporarily closed to the public
This is an exhibition about the Colle della Losa path, which connects the Gran Paradiso Park to the Vanoise Park and the naturalistic peculiarity of the area. The exhibition focuses on the activities carried out by both parks together, on the ibex behaviour that, as it doesn't have borders, migrates periodically between the two sides following the different maturation of pasture; and on the natural wealth of the area which you can pass through by foot, with its typical high mountain environment. It also provides tools to interprete the landscape and its slow evolution. The exhibition contains light panels and others that involve the active participation of the visitor, in order to arouse interest and curiosity in a funny way.
