Il Monte Amiata

Mount Amiata does not have large museums. Instead there is a network of small or very small exhibition places throughout the area. The Mountain Community ""Amiata Grossetano"", in order to resolve problems of management and at the same time enhance the value of these museums, has launched the Amiata Museum System, part of the Ecomuseum Project of the Amiata-Grosseto area, where the identity of the museums is formed by an appreciation for the environment and landscape together with artistic, historic-artistic and cultural expression.

For the purpose of organisation, the museums are grouped into three types: historic and historic-artistic (the David Lazzaretti Study Centre at Arcidosso, the Art Collection at Palazzo Nerucci in Castel del Piano), demo-ethno-anthropological and nature (the House Museum at Monticello Amiata-Cinigiano, the Ethnographic Museum at Santa Caterina-Roccalbenga, Museum of the Mercury Mines of Mount Amiata in Santa Fiora, Museum of the Vine and Wine in Montenero d'Orcia-Castel del Piano) and environment sites (Visitors Centre of the Fauna Park at Arcidosso).
