The town of Fabbriche di Careggine, in Tuscany, Lucca district, was swamped in 1946 to develop a hydroelectric dam as well as lake Vagli, according to the neighborhood tourism board. It has not been seen since 1994, when the dam was last emptied.The ENEL dam on Lago Lake Vagli, Garfagnana. Built to supply hydroelectric power, it immersed a village.

were transferred to a brand-new lakeside town, Vagli di Sotto. Immersed under 34 million cubic meters of water, the still intact structures of the abandoned town– consisting of stone residences, a bridge, a burial ground and also the San Teodoro Church– reemerge just when the dam is emptied for maintenance. According to neighborhood tourist authorities, this has actually taken place only 4 times because the 12th century ghost community was swamped: In 1958, 1974, 1983 as well as 1994. The old town Fabbriche di Careggine resurfaces every ten years for dam
maintenance.

Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported in 2015 that Mario Puglia, a former mayor of neighboring community Vagli di Sotto, asked for the lake to be drained once again, pointing out tourism as well as regional work as a worry.

In a Facebook post, Lorenza Giorgi, little girl of former mayor of the regional town Ilio Domenico Giorgi, suggested that the
lake, which currently works as a water get in instance of fire, could be drained next year.”Dependable sources state that next year, in 2021, the lake of Vagli

will be emptied,”she created.”The last time it was emptied was in 1994 when my dad was mayor and also many thanks to his initiatives and also to the numerous initiatives that with fantastic efforts, was able to set up the whole town of Vagli as well as was able to invite greater than 1 million individuals,” she composed.
