Silk and Brick Art Museum


Established by the Common of Malo in 1994, the Museum was born from the passion of a group of volunteers for local culture, who wanted to preserve the memory of economic activities, which have characterized the industrious town for centuries.
A world reconstructed through objects, which "tell" the story of silk and clay processing. This material is supplemented by photos, documents and research, which contribute to the reconstruction of the parable of birth, development and decline of that sector of economy. Many signs of the past remain still visible in old factories (and buildings adapted for different uses), and are retained in the memory of the last spinners and their families.
