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.
