Asproni Mine Village was a place where mine workers of Serra Moddizzis lived from the end of the 18th to the half of the 19th-century.
The mine was founded by Giorgio Asproni (1841-1936), and was a fully operational village, with all the services of a small town. The town included an elementary school for miners’ children, a post office, church, grocery store, a little hospital, and more.
Asproni and his family lived here despite the relatively short distance from the nearest important town, Iglesias. The last people lived in the town around the 1960s. The once-booming town was abandoned not long after.
