Silk and Brick Art Museum
Silk and clay: simple and precious materials, which once ruled the two characteristic trades of the local economy. The true arts to be rediscovered through tools and documentation of ancient artisan knowledge.
The Museum occupies the second floor and attic of the Corielli Palace, a manor house adjacent to the mill of the same name, which remained in operation until 1962. It is divided into two sections devoted, respectively, to the arts of silk (silkworm rearing and silk reeling) and brick (clay processing from prehistoric times to the large furnaces of today).
