{Rifugio sapienza-Etna sud}

The rifugio Sapienza is an alpine hut located at an altitude of 1,910 m s.l.m. on the southern slopes of Mount Etna.
The building was built during the Fascist period, and is owned by the Italian Alpine Club (CAI) section. It is a small hotel with 50 beds, a restaurant and a bar. Located near the departure station of the cableway of Mount Etna.
The refuge has several times threatened to be overwhelmed by the Etna eruptions that have often lapped but never destroy it.
