The Councils of the Mine Park Lagorai


With a population of 4,004 Civezzano acts as a sort of bridge between the Valsugana and the axis of the Adige. The site of an ancient settlement, it is renowned for the Longobard tombs that have been found there and its important holy buildings, starting with the church of the Assumption: today in Renaissance style, its first foundations dated back to the 5th century. Civezzano is home to the Ecomuseo Argentario which promotes the silver-mining history of Mount Calisio, confirming its thousands-year-old mining vocation: the entire territory is characterised by a dense presence of medieval Canopas (tunnels dug out from the mountain): the canopa di Santa Colomba, the canopa delle Acque, the canopa del Dos del Cuz, the canopa del Magnago, that of Bamponi, of Dos del Lago, Uccello and, finally, the Dos de le Grave, a landfill for the above-mentioned mining activities.
