Die Kirche San Leopoldo mit GußeisenportalThe settlement became an important centre of the iron and steel industry of that time had played therefore an important role in the devolopment of the poor Maremma. The great cast iron portal as well as the church of San Leopoldo are dating back to that period. The foundry, situated in the so called "Ex Ilva" in the centre of Follonica, was active until the year 1963. A kind of open-air museum shows pieces that remained after the closure of the foundry activity.
