Discovering the cement mines
Open only once a year, these magnificent and choreographic caves of Fontanì or Funtanì constitute the network of the old lime mines at Villa di Serio in the province of Bergamo. Thanks to the initiative of the Councilor for Ecology Falabretti of the Municipality of Villa di Serio and the precious collaboration of the I Ricci speleological group, over 50 enthusiasts were able to visit the vast mining complex located at the gates of Bergamo.
Mines, caves, Bergamo karst complexes, an incredible tourist resource still to be enhanced and exploited, capable of generating revenues and jobs in our depressed and abandoned valleys.
Thanks to the administrators of Villa di Serio and to the fans of the “I Ricci” group for this opportunity offered to the territory.
