The mountain hut Rifugio Dibona is located at the foot of the majestic Tofana di Rozes, the iconic mountain of Cortina d'Ampezzo. It is just 8 km away from Cortina and offers a wonderful view of the Ampezzo valley.
Built during the First World War and named after Colonel Tarditi (commander of the front section Val Costeana), Rifugio Tarditi, this hut was one of the buildings of the Vallone Tofana base, from where departed the attacks on the Forcella Fontananegra.
This hut was rebuilt between 1952 and 1953 by Mario Recafina and Antonia Dibona and dedicated to Angelo Dibona (Cortina d'Ampezzo, 1879-1956), the greatest Italian mountain guide ever, who put up plenty of routes in the Dolomites and in the Austrian mountains.
