Buturo-Casa Giulia, in the town of Albi, surrounded by thick beech forests alternating with Italian alder and silver fir forests, was built in the first post-war period as a Forest Station for the environmental and forest monitoring of the area and as the Head Offices of Azienda Foreste Demaniali from Catanzaro during the summer. It suffered from the negative influence of the deforestation carried out in the nearby area of Mt. Gariglione to supply, between the two World Wars, the industrial timber production. Nevertheless, despite being damaged, Gariglione has been recovered and protected, becoming one of the most beautiful forests in Italy. It is thanks to Buturo-Casa Giulia - today under renovation - that the most significant nature protection measures have acquired a great cultural value.
