    The impressive cast iron gate opens onto the Park housing the abandoned buildings in the 1960s by industrial group Ilva. There, under the wonderful pini Follonica, there is the history of the city and of many people who have dedicated their professional lives to the Ilva. A good example of urban renewal of the old village metallurgical and restitution of cultural and educational purposes in the city spaces with the staging (in the former bakery of San Ferdinando) of cast iron Art Museum, Magma (fare: adults 5 euro, reduced 4 euro), and library inside the Grand Ducal Palace. In the Park are exposed steel process machinery. The Pro loco di Follonica, until 30 August, afternoon and bi-weekly guided tours (paid, five euros for adults and 2.50 for children, with reservations required) within the former industrial area. Until 10 September (with Museum admission) you can admire the view of Emanuela Bristot, "the art of men." Worth a visit is the nearby church of San Leopoldo, decorated with furnishings made of cast iron. Only the portico of the Pronaos.

    The show is all in the gate, partly because the former ilva were the walls. Could be maintained better, there are too many layers of paint, but it's still nice.
