Windmills of Italy


Italy is not particularly associated with windmills, but there are two areas where windmill technology was extensively employed. There are the west coast of Sicily, and in Tuscany. Many of the windmills in these areas were used in the salt production industry - being employed both for pumping salt water and also for grinding the salt.
