    The mill took the place of the oldest mill ‘Mulino di Trignano’; it still has all the original features and it was quite modern when it was built, compared to the standards of the time. The owners opted for four millstones, instead of the usual three; they also built a workshop whose machines were operated by energy produced by the mill itself; here they worked as horseshoers and served a wide variety of customers, since they also serviced oxen and cows. Before the workshop was built, the mill had a self-sufficient system for the production of electric energy to lighten the mill at night; this system could be operated at night directly from the bedroom.
