    The slightly mad idea to build the hut came from Ernest Solvay, A Belgian chemist and an entrepreneur, who ran a number of his businesses, which is why so many places there are named after him

    It is still not quite clear why Solvay decided to buy the hut in such an extraordinary place as Matterhorn, one of the symbols of Switzerland
