THE ANCIENT ART OF HANDMADE PAPER – THROUGHOUT THE YEAR

THE ANCIENT ART OF HANDMADE PAPER

A GUIDED TOUR TO THE FABRIANO PAPER MUSEUM

The beautiful town of Fabriano is included on the Unesco World heritage list since ¬†2013. This designation is mainly due to the historical tradition of the handmade paper, which dates back to the medieval period. The city has inaugurated the “museo della carta e della filigrana” (museum of paper and watermark), in 1984. Inside you can admire old watermarked ¬†sheets, and you can get the whole history of paper, coming from the Far East to Europe.
