Archaeological Museum of the Mining District

Inside, the earliest history of the mining district of East Elba is told, from the beginnings of its exploitation, during the Copper Age, to the Middle Ages

Need to know

The exhibition covers a long period of time: from the late Copper Age, through the extraordinary development of metallurgy in Etruscan and Roman times, to the mining village of Grassera, which was destroyed by the pirate Barbarossa in 1534. The museum is enriched by the valuable collection of Elban minerals of the People of Rio, collected when the mines were in operation and now granted by a group of local collectors.
