In this chapter we deal with one of the largest municipalities of the plateau, rich in traditions and sports activities throughout the year: we’re talking about Gallio.
Gallio is the highest municipality of the plateau and, with its 1093 meters above sea leavel, is also the highest municipality in the province of Vicenza. Completely immersed in the green meadows and large shady woods of the plateau, it is located in a strategic passageway, which leads from the village of Asiago to that of Enego and its famous plain of Marcesina.
With the tenacity that distinguished them, the inhabitants of these places began the reconstruction, rectifying the streets and modernizing the inhabited center.
Always linked to Gallio are the Melette, a group of mountainous reliefs whose highest peak is Fior Mount with its 1824 meters. Although today they represent a destination both in winter, for alpine skiing, and in summer for the bike park, these mountains were once the scene of great and bitter clashes, as the writer Lussu remembers and writes, on "A year on the plateau" . Rare and precious pearl of this municipality is the church of the small hamlet of Stoccareddo, dedicated to San Giovanni Battista, unique for its Gothic-Alpine lines on the outside and its "liberty" style on the inside. Village festival of Stoccareddo: "Festa del Villeggiante", which takes place every year between July and August. Gallium village festival: "Festa di San Bartolomeo", held on 24 August.
