    Iron forge of Panigale di Sotto
    The iron forge houses two forge hammers that are still working; it mainly produces farming tools made of metal scraps from the National Rail. It is owned by the Lenzi family, relatives of the Petroni family, long-time owners of the forge in Panigale di Sopra. This forge and the one in Panigale di Sopra both produced “humid air” for kilns, with a complex and excellent system that some say it would be worth to bring back today due to its cultural and economic value.
