Larderello is located in the province of Pisa. Vapors emerge from the soil of the hills and are now used for the production of electricity. The first power plants were installed starting from the early 1900s. Today the Larderello geothermal power plants produce a large amount of electricity. 10% of the world production of geothermal energy comes from the Larderello plants.
