  • If you want to trace a piece of the history of mining in Sardinia you have come to the right place. In the past one of the richest in Europe, today Montevecchio is a successful example of industrial tourism. We chose 2 of the 4 possible routes. Direction: a route from the wealth of the bourgeoisie of the time up to the modest conditions of servitude. St. Anthony: discovering the humble dwellings of miners until the discovery of some mining techniques. Very interesting visit, led by Anna Rita who has enriched by stories and curiosity a path that already alone would not have needed any more. We proposed to reserve the other two routes available. Special thanks to the Guide.

  • the visit to the mine of Montevecchio has been an opportunity to refresh his memory by diving even for only a few hours in a not too distant past. We went from living the typical of early-century bourgeoisie to the misery of living conditions of the workers, who spent the day below ground for a "pittance" paid with coins, and so cannot be used outside the territory ... the story of Carla, drives well prepared and highly addictive game has meant that we dive deep into that world that we lived with the thought the moments of great celebration in the Blue Hall of Casa Sanna, which we appreciated the pioneering ideas of the first mining entrepreneur of Sardinia, which we thought to live there, along with four servants for confidence in the large kitchen equipped with, already then, water heater freezer ... we, then, saw and tried to live as did the miners Paradoxically, in the rooms much more decorous of imaginary but very little time working time data lived ... we dreamed with the image of the great machine Sullivan, a giant black iron, so well preserved to look new, arrived directly from Pennsylvania ... We very sad at the thought of these men, blacks of toil, sweat running down even more than the 300 meters underground to work We marveled when Carla told us that they came to live in 5000 li, who was a perfect community, school and hospital, and still someone continues to live there despite the dream of mining production has stopped, leaving home workers and a soil rich in wounds still visible. It's a visit to do, especially to avoid losing the historical memory, and is a site that should be absolutely valued and recovered in its entirety, you may not think that this is carried out by a cooperative of young, although very willing and prepared, thanks again Carla ... and enjoy your visit at all.
