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.

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!

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.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience a blast from the past with the excitement of the entrance to the underworld. Brave and competent guides. Last but not least, the Twinkie with tart and hot chocolate included
On the main square of Montecatini Val di Cecina, where is the Church of San Biagio, also rises the Praetorian Palace. It is a 14th-century building, went through several changes, with a beautiful façade embellished the portico with cross vaults and arches supported by elegant columns of Ionic order. The Palazzo until 1956 it was the seat of the Town Hall. Today it is the seat of the documentation centre of resources and activities related to the subsoil in Alta Val di Cecina. It is an integral part of a visit to the mining museum which in Montecatini Val di Cecina includes the mine of Caporciano. The Museum offers a glimpse of the rich variety of mineral resources that have been used since remote antiquity in Val di Cecina. In themed rooms: the other copper mines which in 1800 marked the most inaccessible locations, the role of rock salt-from ancient times to the present day-candida processing stone alabaster, the peculiarities of the geothermal reservoir and the use of endogenous fluids, the splendor of the mosaics made with chalcedony, the story of a lignite mine only, the singularities of sulfur springs the rich collection of minerals in their multifaceted capacity for manifestation.
Incredible experience! Very educational.
