The sawmill in Malè takes visitors on a journey of discovery into the traditional art of wood working, made possible by the mill, which was powered by the driving force of water.
The Dei Molini di Malè Sawmill was built in 1774 by the Zanini family. This is one of the “Venetian” sawmills that spread throughout Trentino and the Alps thanks to the rise in the demand for timber driven by the Serenissima Republic. Its technological model was then adapted to the mountain streams and rivers that run alongside it.
Venetian sawmill is part of the Uno Di Un Milione project. Here, through the QR codes on the original water bottles and the dedicated app, you can take part in an experience of art, relation and participation that will help you explore the water running through Val di Sole, discovering how the community in this valley has creatively imagined its own vision of protection for the environment and future generations.
