Museo del Carbone (Grande Miniera di Serbariu)

The mine was the cornerstone of Sulcis' economy from 1937 to 1971, when it was one of Italy's main energy resource providers. The vast mining site has been turned into a cultural centre for energy research. The Museo del Carbone charts the history of coal, mining and the town. The lamp room, machinery rooms, minehead frames with the original machinery and reconstructions of underground galleries recreate the atmosphere of the mine.
