Stelvio Pass - Black & White monotone
The Stelvio Pass is a mountain pass in northern Italy, at an elevation of 2,757 m (9,045 ft) above sea level. It is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, just 13m. below France's Col de l'Iseran (2,770 m).
The original road was built in 1820–25 by the Austrian Empire to connect the former Austrian province of Lombardy with the rest of Austria, covering a climb of 1,871m. The engineer and project manager were Carlo Donegani (1775–1845). Since then the route has changed very little, with it's seventy-five or eighty-eight hairpin turns, depending on how you count them. 48 of them on the northern side are numbered with stones.
