According to the size of the Fascist League of Novara the mountain colony in the Vigezzo Valley consist of some buildings and forms nearly an own little village.

By the side wings and the setbacks of these wings the buildings even look more numerous. The buildings form an U-shaped courtyard which serves as a role call ground and sports area. The impression of an own village is strengthened by a circumferential fence and a small gatehouse.

The main motive of the two storey buildings are the arcades with round arches. They mark the main entrance and the middle axis of the central building, they form connecting passages between dining hall and dormitories as well as the walkways of the dormitories. .
