On this tour you will be able to discover the long history from the mining tradition to the steel industry, which the area has experienced since the most remote times. We will arrive in Gavorrano, the home of the Metalliferous Hills Park, which is now part of the world network of UNESCO Geoparks. Gavorrano is an ancient medieval village perched on the hill, which until a few decades ago was an important mining centre supporting the mine of the same name, where the entrances to the wells are still visible today. The Pozzo Roma stands out among them all. Some of the walls of the Castle of Gavorrano and buildings of the historic centre are recognisable, which still retain their original structures. Dante says the following about the territory of Gavorrano: “Siena made me, Maremma undid me”; as here lie the ruins of the “Castello della Pia” (which unfortunately are not currently open to the public). Equipped with a helmet, we will enter the tunnel and immerse ourselves in the mining tradition. In real-life or as a reconstruction, the route shows the different phases of the mining site: the cultivation techniques, and the support works; the highly experienced guide will tell us stories and anecdotes about the miners’ life, which you are guaranteed to find exciting. We will then carry on to Follonica, where inside the old Fabbrica City, in the heart of what is now a charming seaside town, we will visit the Magma Museum. Housed in the restored spaces of the Forno San Ferdinando, the oldest building in the city, the MAGMA is “a magic box that tells a story of ingenuity, art and passion: that of the Italian steel industry. Al MAGMA, secular walls and precious artifacts, alongside the most advanced multimedia technologies, accompany both young and old visitors on a virtual journey to discover an extraordinary time in industrial archeology”. The visit will end with a tasting of typical Maremma products, with the return scheduled for around 7.30 pm.
