About 30 kilometers east of Lake Garda on the border of the provinces of Vicenza and Trento.
It starts at the Bocchetta di Campiglia at 1216 meters and leads to the Porte del Pasubio at 1928 m. The "road" has a total length of 6300 m, of which about 2300 m run in the eponymous 52 tunnels (Italian Galleria). The slope of the road is up to 22 percent, with an average gradient of twelve percent is managed. Due to the use of pack animals to supply the positions and the transport of heavy equipment (for example, parts of artillery guns) the way was designed with a minimum width of 2.2 m. In curves, a minimum of 3 m was required. It takes a good two and a half hours to climb the plateau.
The construction of the road on the limestone massif began in February 1917 on the south side of the Monte Forni Alti mountain range, to be protected from the artillery of the Austrian Kaiserjäger in the north. Other supply roads such as the Strada degli Scarubbi were largely unusable due to the ongoing bombardment.
