    Since it was established in 1909, the plant has been often changed in order to meet the growing needs of power and to keep up with the technological progresses, through a long and complex story partially remembered along the trail's stages.
    Since 2000 the large rooms of the plant have come alive again thanks to the restoration works which turned the rooms into a large laboratory for theater and performing arts, a factory of ideas well known all over the world, where electric power becomes an artistic product.
