The exhibition consists of a collection of artistic watermarks and watermarked papers, mostly belonging to the period between the 14th and 19th centuries.

The ancient art, handed down from one generation to the next by Pioraco’s paper makers, is brought back to life in the “Gualchiera Prolaquense”. Here it is possible to witness the manual manufacture of paper using 14th century tools and techniques.
