Our tavern – the story
The Osteria dei Francesi (original name) is already mentioned in the chronicles of travelers of the 18th Century. At the time, the inn was run by Luigia duty (1843-1928). Unfortunately, Luigia was widowed at 42 years already with eight children to feed and grow. In the canton of Lucerne Luigi, one of her sons made a living as a mountain guide in the summer months at the Campo Peat and winter as a carpenter furniture. He learned the wood processing techniques in Lucerne. The yellow shingles on the facade of the house and the furniture inlaid still remember the ultramontane style. The characteristic wooden construction holding the heavy stone roof demonstrates the remarkable ability and creativity of the craftsmen from Ticino since then (in dialect “teciatt”). The Antica Osteria Dazio is located in the village of Fusio in the vicinity of the church.
