The windmill of the Ettore Infersa salt pans is one of many which dominated the landscape of the lagoon  with the characteristic cone shaped cupola and the sails in material used to capture the force of the wind; it was used to action the gear which allowed the grinding of the salt, which was extracted from the Stagnone, probably began during the presence of the Phoenicians on the island of Mozia. The  Ettore Infersa salt pans cultivated and collected the salt in a traditional way in pools situates at different levels and banked by tuff stone, making use of the saltiness of the waters of the lagoon, of the force of the wind and the heat of the sun. In the area there is a connection service to Mozia with the company Mozia Line; in the rooms attached to the windmill, there is a conference room and a small shop.
