Geo-Mining Park
The Park is a touristic and educational destination for groups interested in discovering a less well-known area on the Italian territory, rich with history and deeply rooted traditions. The Park hosts one of the most important lead and zinc mines in Europe: discovered in the Roman era, it was active from the XI century until 1991. The guided tour includes an electric train ride and lasts around 1 hour. It is a trip inside Earth, to discover minerals, extraction techniques but, most of all, to understand the struggles of thousands of miners who have worked in its insides for centuries.
MINERAL MUSEUM – MINING LAB
In this prestigious building (which once housed the headquarters of the mine) we propose this exhibition, intended as a travel through materials, items and issues linked to the manifold history of the site, and aimed to observe how the mining activity marked the existence of the settlement and of the people there living over the years. MINIERA LAB is how this place has been named, since we believe that this new location, that hosts the memory of mining heritage, can turn into an archive, a documentation center, a placewhere documents and witnesses are gathered on an ongoing basis, with the purpose to share them with scholars, formerminers, local residents, simply curious people and amateurs too: everyone of them actively contributing to enliven this location, starting from their own interests. The itinerary tells us about this valley, the surrounding mountains, the everyday life in the offices, and depicts also scenes and witnesses of the miners’ work and the typical events that have marked the development, both in Italy and in Slovenia, down to the struggles against the final closure.
