This exhibition highlights a roofing material used in the villages of the National Park of Forests for centuries: the lava, these fine limestone stones extracted from the nearby quarries and cleverly stacked. They were unfortunately replaced from the 19th century by the excessive use of the tile and the remaining lava roofs are no longer maintained or restored today. Also, to better understand this endangered heritage, an inventory study was conducted between the National Park of Forests, the Burgundy-Franche-Comté Region and the Grand-Est Region that this exhibition restores.
