Supporting structure of the departure and arrival station of the cable car from Orselina to the 1,340 m of Cardada.
The departure station is characterized by a parallelepiped shape composed of a steel supporting structure that rests on a granite base and is stopped up with concrete and glass-concrete elements.
The arrival station, with a double arch shaped covering, architecturally integrates the elements of supporting and of returning of the cables of the cable car movement.
