The iron is mined in the form of siderite. But there is also fluorite which was mined too.


At the Miniera Marzoli (Marzoli Mine) is the location of the Museo Le Miniere di Pezzaze (Mine Museum of Pezzaze) and the exhibition Il mondo dei minatori e l'arte del ferro (The world of the miners and the art of iron) with iron sculptures from Victor Piotti. The museum is located in a former mine building.

An adjacent building is used as infrastructure for the museum. The ground floor is the ticket office and and a large room for meetings and conferences. The first floor houses the public library and educational workshops. It is used for educational programs for schools.

The underground tour through Marzoli Mine is offered during the open hours of the museum. Visitors are equipped with water tight jackets and helmets. The mine is entered on an old mining train which brings the group 700 m deep into the mountain. An audio-visual display replicates the sounds and the sights of the mine while it was working.
