The Cunziria

This village, initially born as a purely rural village, was used as a Tannery around the eighteenth century, due to the particular characteristics of the area, favorable to the processing of leather tanning. The presence of a water source near the village, given by the Masera torrent, the presence of plants in the surrounding hills rich in tannins, such as the Sommacco and, finally, the presence of hills around the village in an optimal position for drying the leathers are some of the reasons why it was decided to make Cunziria here.
