Covering 4,438 square kilometres (1,714 sq mi), it is the second smallest region in the country after the Aosta Valley, and has a population of 313,348.

It is the second highest municipality near the center of Italy at 1,421 metres (4,662 ft) above sea level, and 41st in Italy. [3]

On March 5, 2015, some 2.56 metres (101 in) of snow fell in 24 hours in the hamlet setting a new world record recognized by Guinness World Records. [4]

Guinness World Records, known from its inception from 1955 until 2000 as The Guinness Book of Records and in previous United States editions as The Guinness Book of World Records, is a reference book published annually, listing world records both of human achievements and the extremes of the natural world. The brainchild of Sir Hugh Beaver, the book was co-founded by twin brothers Norris and Ross McWhirter in Fleet Street, London, in August 1954.
