The Sos Enattos mine is about 8 km from the Lula village, in central-eastern Sardinia. The exploitation of the silver-rich galena deposit dates back to Roman times. In modern times, cultivations began in 1864 with the Paganelli Company. With alternating events, the mining activity were carried out by several companies, the most important companies in order of activity within the mine were the Franco-Belgian mining company Société Anonime Des Mines De Malfidano, RI.MI.SA. and the Montevecchio-Monteponi Company. Initially, the ore deposit was mined through horizontal tunnels, but to exploit the deeper zone was dug Pozzo Rolandi 80 m deep. The mine, today owned by the company IGEA S.p.A. perfectly preserves the external structures and the shaft to the underground access, which can now be visited by tourists with the help by mine professionals. Nearby is the rural church of San Francesco, very dear to the families of miners, often mentioned by Grazia Deledda (Nobel 1926). This important mining site got the lowest seismic noise and a low anthropization such that it can be particularly suitable for "listening" to gravitational waves. For these reasons, it was recently nominated in Europe to host the Einstein Telescope (ET) scientific research center.
