The mentioned "Giassàra" is situated on the road to Trento, now the state road no. 350, just above the junction for Valpegara, a small town on the right bank of Astico, and it is a monument worth knowing of. Built at the initiative of Pastor Don Domenico Calvi, the building carries the writing "The Icehouse of the Parish of Forni" A.D. 1898; the proceeds from the sale of ice were for the benefit of the parish itself.

The foundations are circular, with a diameter of 8 meters, the stone walls rise up to 10 meters reaching the semi-spherical dome which closes the top of the building with a movable stone, allowing the inserting of ice.
