Emilio Comici, an enthusiastic mountaineer who gave his name to the mountain hut, dedicated his whole life to the Dolomites.

Born in 1901 in Trieste, he began to break out early and at 31 he left his home to live in the Dolomites and work as a mountain guide.

He was very successful, opening legendary climbing routes, and received a gold medal for climbing the north wall of the Sassolungo.

His private life was no less adventurous, and tales of his numerous love affairs gave him the reputation of a Casanova.

The idol of many a woman’s dream died tragically in his beloved mountains, falling from a practice cliff in 1940.

Named after an Alpine pioneer, the mountain hut has itself got some achievements to boast of.

Built 1955 at the foot of the Sassolungo in the heart of the Dolomites, it has kept its true authentic charm right up to the present day, down to the unmistakeable blue shutters.

You will find original features everywhere in the hut: the photographs of family, friends and famous people, Alpine traditions and the close connection to these countries give the hut a wonderful atmosphere, where mountain lovers, ski fans and gourmets are happy to spend their time.
