During the summer months, when the climate allows for the preparation and harvesting of salt, every Tuesday it is possible to spend an afternoon in the salt mine, side by side with the salt workers, working with them and learning a little of the ancient art that has allowed the production of white gold for centuries.

Participants take part in the activities of extracting and transporting salt. This is an absolutely unique opportunity to experience the thrill of stepping into the shoes of a salt miner and to experience the magic of collecting 'sweet' salt, as well as the life of the salt workers, in the evocative atmosphere of the extraordinary environment of the Cervia salt works.

The experience also offers the opportunity to learn about life episodes, stories and anecdotes directly from those who lived them.

At the end, presentation of the participation diploma that will remain as a souvenir and testimony of this unique experience.
