Between the "Ospizio Bernina" Refuge and the glacier mills of Cavaglia, 12 signposts show how electric current was brought to the Rhaetian Railways and the Valposchiavo valley. They also explain the ecological production of energy, and provide geological and biological information on this high Alpine valley.
