Documentation centre on the manufacturing of iron

The iron industry

Along the stream Ingagna, between Netro and Mongrando, the first productive units for the manufacturing of iron were set up at the end of the 16th century. In Netro where this industry was developed the most, they have kept the series of equipment produced by the Rubino works beside the samples which refer to the local practices of the regions they were intended for and to the machinery, sketches and technical manuals which bear witness to the evolution of the manufacturing systems. The centre collaborates with the forge Morino in Mongrando (www.ecomuseo.it).
