Ginevro's Mine
  (Capoliveri - Elba Island) 

 

 

 

On the  Calamita  promontory, a solitary  road  goes  down toward 
the  sea,  and  brings  us  to  the Ginevro’s  Mine,  an  extraction
area  boxed  in  a  valley  among
the sides  of  the  rocky  coasts.

The installations  were among the most 
modern in Europe. 

The plant was closed in 1981.

Now they are in the conditions you 
can see in this shots.

Ginevro is the only elban mine in which an excavation has been undertaken in gallery.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Initially the exploitation has happened in surface and to terraces as for all the others. The first excavations are certificates at the end of the XVIII century, but the thickest jobs are initiated among the two Wold Wars.

...  It's a strong sensation 
of
decadence, the contrast
between the blue sea and 
the exausted red of rust...
