The presence in Perticara of large sulphur deposits led, in the second half of the last century, to intensive industrial activity in a vast area, dedicated mainly to agriculture. It was a microcosm linked to the productivity of the mine, which closed just when the rest of Italy was experiencing an economic boom. Perticara historical sulphur mining museum narrates the history of those generations of miners.
