What is considered part of the Monte Rosa Massif?

Hello, During my skitour on the Dufourspitze a discussion arose about the Monte Rosa Massif and it being the largest (volume wise) in the Alps. So the question is what is considered as the limit of the Monte Rosa Massif? Same goes for the Mont Blanc massif. I've always spoken about, and have seen it written that, the Massif extends from the Trient group in the north to the high peaks around les Contamines and the Col de le Seigne which of course would make it much bigger than what is indicated on the Topo Map for the Monte Rosa.
Any ideas?
Thanks and cheers
Nic

Hallo Nic.
If you go in the Italian sektion of wikipedia
http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monte_Rosa
the geographical limits are well described.
I did not found the same description in German, French and English wiki.

Cheers, Ivan

I recommend to look on a tectonical map. Online you have a such one at www.map.geo.admin.ch --> GEOLOGY--> TECTONICAL MAP. The Monte Rosa Massif ist colored rosa, and marked with a MR. On the same map you'll find the Mont Blanc Massif, which is colored red and marked with MB
