In 1935 the area was purchased by Lapo Farinati, first Podesta of the newly established municipality of Abetone. Aiming to create a great tourist center that interested the whole valley, Farinati launched a project that involved the construction of a large hotel, with different dependencies, slopes and ski lifts, a needle for ice skating and even a racetrack and a circuit automotive.
High up on the ridge, was a rise tower illuminated by a large lighthouse, which would have made the Valley of Pozze Val di Luce.
