Ferriera del Bonano [Bonano Ironworks]

This hydraulic manufactory utilised the water of the Bonano stream for working iron. Proposed in the ambit of the Casentino manufacturing system, of which it is one of many examples, it conserves the machinery and hydraulic organisation necessary to produce motive power. The old Bonano Mill can be admired a short distance downhill.
