Chapel of Santa Barbara

Place of worship in memory of the fallen

Inaugurated in 1979 as a monument dedicated to the 11 victims of mining accidents and the 30 who died of silicosis, the Chapel of Santa Barbara was designed by surveyors Dario Piotti and Tiziano Fontana. It comprises an underground passage of Valtrompia stone with a statue of St. Barbara in the centre and the inscription “Marmentino ai suoi minatori” (Marmentino to its Miners).
