Name(s) in local language(s): Miniere Monte Trisa, Val Mercanti, Torrebelvicino, Vicenza, Veneto, Italia
 
The old Monte Trisa mines, once exploited for mixed sulfides, barite and kaolinite, are located in altered Triassic porphyrites near the village of Torrebelvicino. The mines has been refered to as "La Veneziana Mine", which is a misnomer. (The real Veneziana Mine is located in Riolo Valley, near to Trentini Mine).
The Veneziana Gallery is located at the base of Monte Trisa, at the right of the end of Gallery n. 2 dump. Minerals from the Gallery n.2 are therefore often erronously labelled as coming from Veneziana Gallery.
