Name(s) in local language(s):
Ciapa Liscia, Ferriere, Val d'Aveto, Provincia di Piacenza, Emilia-Romagna, Italia


The Ciapa Liscia (or Ciava Liscia on the I.G.M. map), located near the border with Genova province (Liguria), is part of the N-S oriented ridge, connecting Monte Crociglia with Groppo Rosso and dividing the middle Aveto Valley to the west and the upper Nure Valley to the east. The name of the mountain (1594 m a.s.l.) is connected with the smooth and subvertical shapes of its western slope (the word ciapa, or ciappa, in the local dialect indicates a flat piece of stone and also a buttock), originated from a large landslide that evidenced the smooth meta-basaltic rock and accumulated large blocks of rock at its base in the so-called Valle Tribolata.

To reach the collecting place, from the village of Ferriere in Nure Valley, drive to Selva and from there turn right, just outside the village, towards Torrio. After about five kilometers, at Crociglia Pass, park the car and take the ridge trail for about 15 minutes; then, near a fence, turn right taking the downhill path and continue for about 25-30 minutes.
First you reach the Rocca Marsa site and then the neighbour Ciapa Liscia site, both in the area where a large landslide has evidenced ophiolitic pillow basalts.

The same rock and minerals described for Ciapa Liscia are found at the adjacent locality called Rocca Marsa.
