The Montevecchio Mining District: Industrial Archeology in SW Sardinia, Italy (2001)


Industrial development in Sardinia, which dates back to the 19th century, started with the growth of lead and zinc mines. The Montevecchio mines represent an industrial activity that started in 1848 and operated until its definitive end in 1991. This paper describes some abandoned mines and buildings that are being restored and rehabilitated for the creation of a tourist area in the eastern industrial area of the Montevecchio mining district. Some attention has also been paid to the geological background and the environmental problems related to the mining activity, most of which must be solved before the adaptive reuse project is completed.
