Museo della carta e della filigrana

Housed in the monumental complex of the recently restored former Convent of the Dominicans, the Museum represents the image of seven hundred years of local paper tradition. In a large fourteenth-century room on the ground floor, the medieval gualchiera for the manufacture of handmade paper was rebuilt. The Museum is divided into sections, which from the handmade manufacture of the paper and its use of the artefact, pass to the exhibition of the watermarks, with details on the techniques for obtaining them, the visualization of the historical journey of the paper, to the phases of development of this art. in the land of Fabriano, its processing processes and related technology, through historical-thematic documents and cards.
