When Savoy became French in 1860, a free zone, exempt from taxes, was created. The border of this area was located in the heart of Val d'Arly. The inhabitants then organized a vast smuggling network. Smugglers, to divert customs officials, used certain tricks such as inverting the soles of their shoes to simulate the opposite direction of movement or using strings to discreetly pull the goods.
