    At the end of the 19th century, the young Italy wanted to ensure the control of Mont-Cenis, a millenary transalpine axis. It was in a context of diplomatic tensions with France that Italy fortified Mont-Cenis by equipping it with several forts. The fort of Ronce, which dominates the whole pass, was built from 1877 to 1880 on a circular plan with two levels of fire, adapted to the new possibilities of rifled artillery.
