Carestia Tirozzo museum – Fobello

One of the largest collections of the work of Abbot Carestia, a Valsesian botanist: 1,000 sheets on phanerogams and partly cryptogams, pressed and dried, collected in Valsesia between 1854 and 1900. Delivered by the abbot himself to Dr. Tirozzo and preserved by his son, Prof. Pier Ugo, are now part of the museum, which has been donated to the CAI (Italian alpine club).
