Wash-house of "Asproni" mining village (early XX c.)
Sardinia

The "Asproni" mining village was built in the early XX century when the mining engineer Giorgio Asproni, former executive manager of the Sedda Moddizzis mine (lead, zinc, barium), took over the entire property and planned and ruled an modern mining village (named after him), equipped with electricity, running water, offices, a little school, a grocery store, a church, stables, sleeping houses and a luxurious villa in which he lived until his death (1936). The village was abandoned and now is a fascinating ghost village; it's located in the municipality of Iglesias but it's closely linked to the history of Gonnesa.
