Long Description:

"Zwischen dem Etschtal und dem Gardasee besteht ein 10km langer Tunnel, der starke Hochwässer der Etsch in den Gardasee ableitet und so die Stadt Verona und den Unterlauf der Etsch vor Überschwemmung schützt. Der Tunnel wurde 1959 in Betrieb genommen und und seither mehrfach genutzt.
Der Tunneleingang liegt bei Mori im Etschtal. Der Tunnel unterquert den inzwischen
trockenen Lago di Loppio und den Pass San Giovanni und mündet bei Torbole in den
Gardasee." - Quelle: (visit link)
