Museo del Picapreda Novate Mezzola

Comments

A small museum housing artifacts, images and posters describing the history of granite processing in Novate Mezzola. Sanfedelino. For nearly two centuries, extracting granite from the Sanfedelino quarry, so called to recognize the martyr Fedele who's remains were found here, was the main occupation of the area. The granite was primarily used for paving the streets and squares of Milan, Como, Pavia and Bologna. The quarry enjoyed full production until the 60's. Today, only a small area of the quarry is in production.
