The first wooden hut was built in 1949 by the University Subsection of the Italian Alpine Club (SUCAI) of Turin. It was dedicated to Giusto Gervasutti, a mountaineer from Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, in memory of the friendship with the young people of SUCAI. Gervasutti was a complete mountaineer, skilled and capable both in rock climbing and in high mountain ascents.
The bivouac was completely rebuilt in 1961, using wood and metal plate. In 2011, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the foundation of SUCAI Ski Mountaineering School, the University Subsection and the Italian Alpine Club of Turin decided to realize a new structure completed on 22nd June 2012.
