During the Nineties, the deindustrialization process in the Sardinian mining industry bringing the sites to their final close in 1997 produced a mobilisation for the regeneration of the territory, which led to the creation of the Geological and Mining Park of Sardinia in 1998. In the early 2000s, a massive actuation for the recovery of mining companies’ sources triggered the institution of important archives, such as the international Igea Spa mining historic Archive - which, in the next decade, promoted a large-scale process of oral sources collection, counting around 100 video-interviews. These sources, still largely unknown, constitute an invaluable resource for the investigation of the history of work in the Sardinian mining context.
