Brief note to this town known for the beautiful bridge of Vana.

Just upstream from the hamlet Vana of Ceres (TO) near the Stura is a tiny giagitura of amalgamated quartz, sulphides including pyrite only was easily determined, others were not identified at the time.

My heartfelt thanks to Istituto Geografico Militare in Florence that has made available the cartography of the area treated.
