Darzo mines

A buried treasure to be discovered

The town of Darzo and other villages in the Valle del Chiese in the Giudicarie were protagonists of the transition from a peasant civilisation to an industrial society thanks to the development of the barite mines. It was an epochal transformation with two symbolic dates: 1894, discovery and opening of the first mines, and 2009, final closure of the tunnels of the last mine, that of Marìgole.

Over a century of history that has affected many villages and communities, hundreds of families and several generations of barite workers, renamed Darzo’s white gold.
