    Iron forge of Panigale di Sopra
    This forge is one of the oldest in the region; a document related to the trade of coal, held by the Petroni family, testifies that the forge belonged to Succi business company and was linked to the forge in Porchia. The building still houses all the original features and a forge hammer in good working state. The forge used to produce farming tools and covered a wide business area, spanning from the Passo della Futa to the Passo delle Radici. The Assaloni family is its current owner and the forge now operates with modern machinery; today it produces a variety of highly specialised tools, such as a type of snowploughs, which are distributed on the international market and patented by a German business.
