  • Kaporchano mine-copper mine with historical origins. It is located approximately one kilometre from the village of Montecatini Val di Cecina and was active from Etruscan times up to the beginning of 1900 years with some breaks. During the nineteenth century the company expanded copper mine and Montecatini Val di Cecina became the largest copper mine in Europe. Mining activities ceased in the early 20th century. The museum complex mountain massif is the result of the will of the municipal administration of Montecatini Val di Cecina, which with the help of other institutions: community Montana High Val di Cecina, province of Pisa, in the region of Tuscany and of the European Union Unable to recover the abandoned mining complex. Mine was divided into ten levels, and at each level it several galleries. If you add up all the length of the galleries, you reach 35 miles away, and if you add the height of all wells, you reach 10 km.

  • We were more than surprised! Because sneaked behind the name "Museum" is a journey into the past and into the Interior of the mountain. To the tunnels and shafts. Very exciting leadership (also in German and English) with lots of information about the mine and the life in the equally beautiful Montecatini. This detour on the road to Volterra is extremely worthwhile. Far from the masses of tourists can enjoy breath-deprived views of the country. During the tour, you can feel the passion for what is here to report it. It is a part of the life of the Director and she tells this part full of joy. Grazie molto, cara Lucia!

  • I was today at the Museum of the mine and I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the place and the baggage of history and memory that preserves. The guide is made by Mrs. Lucia was clear, exciting and sometimes exciting, skill and passion that animate leave a sense of satisfaction and regret to leave a path over. The place is a step back in history, society and the world of work, the visit to the mine is exciting and topped by real anecdotes recounted cleverly they create empathy with the visitor and make him feel at home. The restoration is impressive and leaves intact secondary workplaces to the mine and the interiors as offices and adjoining rooms at the entrance to the tunnel. The documentary exhibits and some ceramic pieces are available for viewing in a way so simple that it really seems to be in a familiar place, perhaps I should say that in this place you can "feel" the story, a visitor experience that breaks down the divide between visited and visitor and which I think creates what is called a cosy Museum that not only entertains but welcomes you. PS: I made the visit with my seven year old daughter who is fascinated and never lost focus on the story.

  • After the tour we fell in love in the city and could felt the soul of all miners. It was the most unique and unforgettable excursion that we had.
  • Was a nice expirience, enjoying a walk through many years back of Mining in Italy.
  • Today March 11, despite the bad weather, we visited the Museum of mining in Montecatini Val di Cecina. Excited about what we have seen and visited. A throwback with a competent Guide, funny and passionate with profound love of the history of mininiera. Galleries and various tunnels, masterpieces of the many labors of man. The small village is worth visiting.
