Monterotondo Marittimo Maremma Toscana

The MUBIA, the Geomuseo delle Biancane, is an act of love and gratitude for Monterotondo Marittimo, where geothermics was born and the development of the area started: from the discovery of the boric acid to electricity production. In the MUBIA visitors can discover geodiversity, learn how minerals and rocks have formed and can understand why the ground here is so warm and white. The main character of the museum is “Gea”, the mother earth, not “Geothermics,” which is already widely celebrated in other museums of this area.

"Versan le vene le fummifere acque
per li vapor che la terra ha nel ventre,
che d'abisso li tira suso in alto"
