Culture & History

Molin di Bucchio, one of the oldest mills in the Casentino area, dates back to the 13th century. The Bucchi family has carried out milling activities for over 700 years. In addition to its milling history, the mill was home to an important trout farm that received numerous awards in the 1930s.

The mill functioned regularly until 1955 and occasionally until 1960. In recent years, both milling and trout farming activities have been resumed, providing a unique opportunity for visitors to experience a living piece of history. The mill’s rooms retain their original characteristics, with the tools used by millers, such as shovels, hoppers, and millstones, still on display.
