Thanks to Adriano Petrachi for adding this peak.

After 1905 Klockerkarkopf alt.2912m became known also as Vetta d'Italia - Top of Italy. This name suggests the summit as Italy's northernmost point. But in fact after WW I the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye declares the nearby summit of Testa Gemella/Zwillingskopfl alt.2841m as Italy's actual northernmost point.
