Can someone confirm this is the **new** PetraPiana refuge? Has someone seen it inside already?

It looks exactly the same design as the old one, which was in pretty poor condition last September.

Could they have just stuck a new roof and some new wall panels on the old one ?

Hello Michele,
In the great scheme of renewing/renovating most of the GR20 refuges I wonder if this is all that Petra Piana gets?...an external makeover.
I have never been inside the refuge it all looked a bit gloomy and extremely over crowded and all the facilities that I used were well away from the refuge.....I found the camping pleasant at PP since there were several aspects to the pitches so we campers were reasonably spread out.

Hello Roger,

Yes, I came to the same conclusions about just an external makeover. That's why I asked if anyone had seen it inside after the renovation. I hope they won't just stop at that because the toilet block needed an urgent and total renovation too. In fact according to their improvement projects http://tinyurl.com/gr20-improvements the whole PietraPiana compound should be rebuilt from the ground up. We'll see ....
