The Pescia Paper Museum is part of the Pescia ETS Paper Museum Association, which promoted the project and currently includes 68 members including private individuals, associations and public bodies.
The main purpose of the Museum is to preserve and pass on the ancient art of paper processing and manufacturing by hand and to raise awareness of the importance and evolution of paper production, an activity that has been present in the Pescia area since the end of the 15th century.
In 2004, the Association acquired the old paper mill Le Carte which belonged to the Magnani family and the headquarters of the Museum.
The Museum, which over time has become a precious reference point for restorers, scholars and bibliophiles from all over the world, protects and passes on a universal knowledge of man, shared in time and space: making paper. Its activity is aimed at a wide audience of scholars and students, enthusiasts and curious who can explore the universe of paper and experience its thousand secrets: from the precious collection of watermarks to the vintage tools and machinery for the hand-made creation of paper.
The mission of the Museum is to preserve six centuries of tradition, spreading the culture and knowledge of one of the oldest communication tools: paper.
