There is a close relationship between Molveno and the water of the Brenta Dolomites.
You can understand by visiting the ancient Taialacqua Sawmill (open to visitors in front of the campsite) which was built in 1500 or so, in the form of a cooperative, by the inhabitants of the village.
In the same period, on the “Rio Molini”, derivation of the Massò stream, other sawmills were built, now disappeared, and flour mills, of which the millstone and the ruins at the waterfalls are visible.
Lake Molveno, a natural basin born about 3000 years ago as a result of a landslide, was transformed at the end of the 40's into a hydroelectric basin.
A real path of industrial archaeology leads us to learn about the transformations of the second post-war period and the economic boom in the Alps.
In addition to the guided tour around Lake Molveno, which explains the genesis of the hydroelectric exploitation of the area, you can visit the Hydroelectric power station of Santa Massenza, at the time of construction, the most imposing in Europe.
