The Copper Ecomuseum
10080 Ronco Canavese (TO)
Municipality: Ronco Canavese
The ancient copper forge dates back to 1675 and represents the most fascinating evidence of the age-old tradition of the copper working in the Orco and Soana valleys.
The route follows the stages of the copper processing of the pre-industrial stage, when the forges still needed charcoal and the energy used to make the equipment work was provided by water.
Near the exhibit spaces there is a modern educational lab where, by previous booking, you will have the opportunity to learn some of the secrets of the coppersmiths.
The Ecomuseum is situated in fraz. Castellaro di Ronco C.se. For further information on the opening days or book a visit, please call the number +39 338 6316627.
Opening times: The Ecomuseum is currently closed for renovation works.
