Old mill


Molino Vecchio is an out of use water mill dating back to the 14th century and rises on Medicina's Canal.

It belonged to the Bolognini family from Bologna who later on hand it over to the Mescolani family. In the 19th century it became the property of different private owners.
Its present façade is a modern one which does not hide completely traces of a more ancient structure.

The building retains the entrance arcade, the old rooms in the basement housing the spoon-shaped blades of the wheel and the bulkheads for regulating the water flow.

The upper banks of Medicina's Canal are still visible. 


Address: Via L.Fava - 40059 Medicina (BO)
