Il Pastificio Moro ed il Museo Mulino di Bottonera in Lombardia - Italy
Attraverso il libro di Marco Scuffi “Pastificio di Chiavenna. I 145 anni” conosciamo la storia del Pastificio Moro e del Mulino di Bottonera che oggi ospita un interessante museo di archeologia industriale sulla produzione della farina.
Valchiavenna, provincia di Sondrio, tutto è nato per volontà di Carlo Moro (1838-1889). Carlo, che da giovane lavorava come panettiere, cominciò la propria attività fondando un mulino ed un torchio per la macinazione dei cereali a Chiavenna, presso il quartiere della Bottonera, dove sorgevano già da tempo altri opifici, che sfruttavano l’energia motrice fornita dall’acqua di un canale artificiale, la Molinanca, chiuso nella seconda metà del XX secolo.

Campaign for a European Industrial and Technical Heritage Year 2015
In november 2009 industrial heritage associations from different European countries and regions met in Calais (France) to discuss cross-border co-operation and exchange of experiences and information. There was a large concensus on the proposal to launch the idea of an European Industrial and Technical Heritage Year.
A campaign was launched which makes an appeal to heritage and (local) history associations in every European country to support the initiative. As a first step, in 2010-2013, one aims to rally as much as possible national, regional, local and thematic associations round the common Memorandum.
The associations and representatives who took part in the London E-FAITH weekend of October 2012 decided to designate 2015 to be the European Industrial and Technical Heritage Year - thus to happen exactly 40 years after the pioneering European Architectural Heritage Year of 1975

Sado Island in Japan and the Golds mines
On Sado Island, which is off the coast of mainland Japan, there were some large-scale mines which had been developed from the middle of the 16th century, and those remains are preserved in good condition. Sado Gold and Silver Mine is now aiming to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In November 2010, Sado Gold and Silver Mine was inscribed on Japan's World Heritage Tentative List, under the title of "The Sado Complex of Heritage Mines, Primarily Gold Mines"

Antikythera Mechanism - video
New interpretations of the Antikythera Mechanism reveal that it could be used to predict eclipses, and that it had a dial recording the dates of the ancient Olympiads. The 2,000-year-old box of intricate gearwork provides a glimpse of the engineering prowess of the Hellenic world.

La Centrale del Battiferro a Bologna è in vendita - Italy
Il Comune di Bologna mette in vendita la Centrale idrotermoelettrica del Battiferro, una delle testimonianze più importanti della storia industriale del capoluogo dell’Emilia Romagna.
La Centraledel Battiferro è situata lungo il canale Navile, che fu per secoli uno dei cuori pulsanti dell’attività produttiva in città: l’area dove si trova, il Battiferro, deriva il nome dalla presenza nel passato di opifici legati alle lavorazioni metallurgiche. Si tratta di una zona che potremmo definire “strategica” dal punto di vista dell’archeologia industriale: nelle immediate vicinanze della centrale si trovano, infatti, il principale sostegno (così si chiamano le chiuse) del canale, la Fornace Galotti che ospita il Museo del Patrimonio Industriale e i resti di un’antica cartiera…

L'industrie minière de l'antimoine et du tungstène. Émergence, prospérité et disparition des exploitations de France métropolitaine aux XIXe et XXe siècles
Par Pierre-Christian Guiollard
Mémorie de thèse soutene le 11 décembre 2009 à l’Université de Haute-Alsace à Mulhouse.
Directeurs de thèse : Nicolas Stoskopf et Pierre Fluck (CRESAT)
Atlantica Éditions
ISBN: 9782758803737

Year: 2009
Antimoine et tungstène, deux « petits métaux » d’alliage qui, chacun à des époques différentes, eurent une importance stratégique liée à l’industrialisation et à l’armement. L’antimoine dont l’existence est connue depuis l’Antiquité, fut exploité en France depuis le XVIe siècle, mais c’est véritablement au cours des XIXe et Xxe siècles qu’il fit l’objet d’une exploitation importante en de nombreux points du territoire français. Le tungstène est de découverte plus récente, même si ses principaux minerais, la wolframite et la scheelite, sont connus depuis longtemps des minéralogistes et des chimistes, ses applications industrielles datent seulement de la dernière décennie du XIXe siècle.
