Description
The mill, which probably dates back to the 1600's, among one of the oldest in the Reggiano Apennines, is in juxtaposed stone.
It was restructured and transformed in to a private residence.
From the eastern view of the construction certain original lights from the 1600's open, framed in massive door-jambed limestone.
In the East view of the construction you can still the arches of the water passageway. The water from the torrent set in motion numerous chestnut grinding stones on different levels.
At the beginning of the 20th century it was still in use.
Not too far from the mill there is a bridge that crosses the torrent Ozola.
