Those two huts, from which the alpine posture is formed, is situated on the right of the Flua torrent, near the cliff which supports the moraine of the glacier Sesia-Locce. We are not sure about the precise date of the construction, and there are no documents regarding this topic, but the position and exposure may suggest that it was build in the 1700.
In 1966 the CAI association of Vercelli began the restoration process to which took part the family Barba (in memory of Nino, president of Vercelli section) and Ferrero (in memory of their son Luciano, a young mountaneer who died due to a grave illines), and many other private citizens. The restoration ended in 1968 and the hut, named Barba Ferrero, was inaugurated the 1 september.
