The visit

Suspension of museum activities: We are pleased to inform you that the expansion and enrichment works of the underground visit routes of the Mine have been completed. Given their complexity and importance, the works lasted for several months, but it was possible to open and carry out the various construction sites during the long periods of closure and limitations to the public linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, effectively minimizing the impact on visits. In particular, we thank the construction management, the specialized companies and the workers involved for having carried out their work in the best way, despite not simple environmental conditions and short times: our desire to reopen, constantly urged by a loyal public, has also infected They. In the coming weeks, public tender procedures are expected to start to identify the future manager. These procedures also need some time to be carried out with correctness and guarantee, but we hope they will be concluded positively and in time for a summer opening of the complex.
