Still waiting to make its grand return to the Villa De Larderel, which is currently under renovation, the museum is currently located in a building in front of the villa.The museum’s aim is to document the relationship between the geothermal energy sources of the area and the daily life of its inhabitants, beginning with the ways in which locals have benefited from the thermal resources since ancient Roman times. This resource has been used for many objectives over the centuries, until the last century when locals began using it to generate electricity in 1904.
Through photographs, instruments and machinery, the museum displays the history of the industrial use of geothermal energy.
