THE ICE-HOUSE

Industrial archaeology
Ghiacciaia a Grazzano Visconti (PC) ph archivio IAT Val Nure Val Chero

Its a cylindrical building, made of bricks and fire bricks, used at the beginning of the 20th century to preserve products: it was filled with snow and ice slabs taken from the fields nearby. Part of the structure was dug into the ground for about 4m. The thick wall coating, its width and dimensions (about 3 m high) made it perfect for its function.
Its been recently restored by Sovrintendenza dei Beni Artistici.
