A FIRE DEPARTMENT CARVED FROM STONE

Located in Magrè sulla Strada del Vino is perhaps the most unique fire department in the world. Carved out of a mountain, three caverns house trucks and administrative offices. Constructed from steel reinforced concrete, interior walls are finished with beech coal dust and black paint to evoke the feelings of burnt wood.
