The museum is divided in two sections: the first, inside the Civic Museum of Natural History explores the topic of the formation of hydrocarbon from a geological point of view, and offers a synoptic outline of the sector. The second section is in Padiglione Negrotti and tells the story of oil industry in Piacenza from the origins to the ‘artisanal’ era (15th-18th century) toward the industrial era (end of the 19th century to today).
