The Maglio Averoldi is part of the museum complex Borgo del Maglio, an area with a strong cultural character, which offers its visitors the charming experience of discovering an ancient forge of the fifteenth century and a valuable collection kept in the Casa Museo Pietro Malossi.
Animated by the hydraulic force of the Molinaria canal and by the passion of the blacksmith Andrea Averoldi (known as "Maér"), the mill remained active until 1984, producing agricultural tools. After careful restoration by the Municipality, the forge was reopened in 2000.
In addition to traditional guided tours and educational workshops, the complete activation of the forge can be requested, with the opportunity to witness the traditional forging operations that transform damask steel into valuable collectible blades.
The village of Maglio is part of the itinerary “La Via del Ferro e delle Miniere della Valle Trompia”, that gives the chance to discover the old plants and mines where iron was extracted and processed.
