Travelling through time inside the highest mines in Europe
Follow us on a journey through history that needs a bit of imagination to fill a space abandoned since 1979 with sounds, noises and emotions.
The first document on the Cogne mine dates back to 1432. Since that year the magnetite extraction activity has been uninterrupted, but with the beginning of the twentieth century extraction reached an industrial scale. The mining settlement of Cogne, the biggest in the Aosta Valley, is one of the most important magnetite mining sites in our country and represents the workplace of generations of Cogneins and emigrants from all over Italy.
