The Signalkuppe, also known as Punta Gnifetti in Italian, is a peak in the Pennine Alps on the border between Italy and Switzerland. It is a subpeak of Monte Rosa. The mountain is named after "the signal", a prominent gendarme atop the east ridge, named Cresta Signal. The first ascent was made by Giovanni Gnifetti, a parish priest from Alagna Valsesia. The highest building of Europe, the Capanna Margherita lies on the summit of the mountain. Work started in 1890, supported by the Italian Crown, and Queen Margherita opened it in 1893.
