The project of territorial renewal and the “cement trail”.
The reclaimed land has been restored to nature and to agriculture, and is now accessible to the general public. The buildings considered most significant to record the history of the place have been stabilised and converted to new use as exhibition and teaching space and as a multi-purpose and cultural venue.
In this imposing setting so rich in contrasts, the “cement trail” winds its way – a fascinating route that passes through underground quarry tunnels and between huge industrial buildings, enabling us to discover the process of transforming rock into cement.
The visit, between archaeology and technical evolution, is also a dive into the troubled and emblematic history of this small patch of land as well as a journey into the acceleration that man has relentlessly imposed on himself and the world.
