Still on national borders

For years it drags a dispute between Italy and France, of which no end in sight, which referred to the boundary line on the ridge between Courmayeur and Chamonix, with particular reference to the nationality of the summit of Mont Blanc.
Of this diatribe, which affected many of us, the Club 4000 gave extensive news is on its website under the heading "Forum", both in the "literary pages" of the book "All 4000", published by the publisher in 2010 vivalda, in collaboration with the Cai Torino.
Now, a new question is open, this time on the border between Italy and Switzerland, in the Rosa group. It gives the news magazine "The Rose", n. 3, 2012.
From the article "Rectification of the frontiers", with eyelet "The Global Warming also changes the watershed between Italy and Switzerland," so we know that "The glaciers will melt and change the border line between Italy and Switzerland, long well-744 kilometer ", and therefore, in recent months, it has been signed by a joint committee a bilateral agreement to redefine sparti-nation line that had been set in 1815, with the Treaty of Vienna.
However, it remains to define the most important node, ie "the dividing line of the Gray Head, in the Monte Rosa massif, between Cervinia and Zermatt, where the geography has changed due to the melting of glaciers. A shift of a few hundred meters and the Italian ski resort could be catapulted (sic!) In Swiss territory with important consequences for the administrative and fiscal plan. "
A technical committee will make a visit next spring for a survey that identifies the new border. On this occasion we learn that in the past have already been implemented in adjustments to the boundary; one of the most famous covers that of the early '40 that has affected the Regina Margherita hut, in 4554 meters on Punta Gnifetti, where, before the line cut it almost in half and who had slept the legs in Switzerland and head Italy (!).
The Helvetic confederation, its goodness, agreed to lose a few meters and also Italy played its part. Thus the highest refuge in the Alps has been included entirely in the jurisdictional territory of the municipality of Alagna. Now the principles on which the two governments will have to rule have been defined which, perhaps already next year, will officially ratify the latest updates. And so we hope that at least this problem is finally solved.
