Historian Stefano Morisini, who coordinates heritage projects at Stelvio national park, told the newspaper: ‘The barracks is a time capsule of the White War that helps us to understand the extreme, starving conditions that the soldiers experienced.

‘The knowledge we’re able to gather today from the relics is a positive consequence of the negative fact of climate change.’

Marco Ghizzoni, who works at the White War museum in Lombardy, said a corpse is found ‘every two or three years’, usually in areas where there was fighting.

The White War is the name which was given to the fighting in the high-altitude part of the Italian front which took place the First World War between troops from Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
