The Visitor Center is managed by the "Club Alpino Italiano - Sezione Vigezzo" according to the principles that also inspired the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism (ECST).

This year's theme is focused on the Park as a vector for young talents and as an element of integration and cultural contamination in the Vigezzo Valley. On the upper floor of the Visitor Center, four young artists will exhibit their works: Daniele Giambi (climber) who paints elements of the landscape and fauna in oil; Bianca Herghiligiu, young Romanian who paints nature with personal and distinctive traits; Serena Guerra, creator of wooden works and themed paintings; Mario Borgnis (writer) with his two books: one tells the story of Antonio Mozzanino and the other talks about the tragic end of Romano Sotta in Alpe Basso.
