For the Children








aSsalti nella Storia
This project, which originated from the efforts of 5 museums of the Colline Metallifere in the province of Grosseto (Archaeological Museum of Vetulonia, Mining Museum of Gavorrano, Museum of Iron and Cast Iron of Follonica, Archaeological Museum of Massa Marittima, and the Documentation Centre of Scarlino) and co-financed by the Regione Toscana,  proposes to bring young people close to the cultural heritage of the territory in order to become acquainted with it, love it and, consequently, to safeguard it. The protagonists of the individual volumes, who are always children, will accompany us light-heartedly, narrating to us the history of their people and of their land through the simply gestures of their daily life.

He explains to us how kilns were built and how they operated.
