In a mountainous area made up of streams and waterfalls such as Lunigiana it often happens to find a mill for each location. Almost always water operated thanks to the nearby waterfalls.
They were used until the 70s. Fundamental for the inhabitants of the small mountain communities, who lived in the woods and fed on its products.
These stone buildings can be found throughout the Lunigiana area, set in centuries-old woods, and almost always near waterfalls and streams, which were once indispensable tools for processing raw materials into flour. Including chestnuts, wheat and corn.
Today it is not strange to find still working mills, the town of Filattiera has even two still in use.
