“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”

 (Michelangelo Buonarroti)


The aim of the project is to re-connect the mines with the environment through a metamorphosis of the existing orography into a natural terraced ecosystem.

This new cultural landscape will host tourists and guide them through a natural experience while learning and discovering the importance of a more and more fragile nature.

Visitors can discover the produces, background history and agricultural techniques of autochthonous fruit trees.

Additional closed spaces represent both a functional support and cultural spaces with permanent or temporary exhibitions to promote the regional craftsmen mastering ceramics and textile art.

The wooden structures adapt to the different mines shapes, that are the core element, carved like a sculpture.


An important resource for the past turns into a strategic vision of renaissance for the area and local communities.
