The Old Mill at Arlia

Brought back to work once more

Fivizzano
The Old Mill is located in the Fivizzano territory, on the right bank of the Rosaro river, not far from the old city of Arlia.
With its three millstones (for chestnuts, wheat and corn), the store and the stable for mules, it was active from the XIX century, as we can tell from the date on a stone, to 1968.
The Comunità Montana della Lunigiana restored the structure and started the mill working again. In the building, used as a store, it is now possible to see an exhibition of the mills of Lunigiana.
Today the Old Mill is a tourist-educational structure, managed by Legambiente and Cooperativa l'Ospitale, which can be visited and allows the tourist to assist in the water-driven production of meal.
