Celebrating 750 years of Fabriano

Celebrating 750 years of Fabriano | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Founded in 1264, Fabriano remains the European leader in paper production

It is undeniable that “very few companies can claim a longer or distinguished heritage than Fabriano”. This extraordinary Italian paper mill was founded in 1264, at a time in which its fine arts papers were used and praised by the Renaissance icon Michelanglo Buonarroti. However, Michelangelo was not the only celebrity with a weakness for Fabriano paper. The German composer Ludwig van Beethoven was also a great fan of Fabriano [...]

To celebrate its 750th birthday, Fabriano just published a new book “Cotone, Conigli e invisibili segni d’acqua. 750 anni di storia della carta Fabriano” (In English, Rags, Rabbit Skins and Invisible Watermarks. 750 years of papermaking in Fabriano). The book, edited by Chiara Medioli, whole reenacting the history of this prestigious paper mill, puts a lot of emphasis on materials and technologies involved in paper production. Indeed, “Cotone” reminds about the materials origianlly used to produce paper; “conigli” about the special glue Fabriano experts created using rabbits’ skin to strengthen paper resistance, and “acqua” about the fact that we can’t have paper without water.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

The owners all grew up eating the frozen treat. Francesca and Marco Ferrarese fondly remember their hometown of Fabriano’s gelateria, one of the oldest in Italy.

“When were kids it was a tradition that in the evening, after dinner, all the kids went together to get gelato,” Francesca Ferrarese said.

Paper from Fabriano - Google Cultural Institute

Paper from Fabriano - Google Cultural Institute | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Fabriano is one of the few cities in the world where paper is still being made by hand as a testament to the will not to lose its ties with a tradition that is hundreds of years old.
The first paper in the West was created here thanks to the technological innovations that this area brought to the manufacture of this product.
The most important innovations were the introduction of gluing the sheets with animal gelatine to make them impermeable against the ink the adoption of the hydraulic multiple hammer mill to refine the mixture, and the invention of the watermark as a security element to demonstrate the quality of the paper and identify its manufacturer.
The precious watermarked sheets from Fabriano are destined for distinguished purposes, and are made with carefully selected raw materials through a method that has remained unchanged for 700 years. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Italy long has been famed for its quality of life, its fashion, its heritage and its food. We believe the Internet can help promote the Made in Italy lifestyle brand and the Google Cultural Institute has worked with the Italian Agriculture MinistryUnion of Chambers of Commerce, the University Ca' Foscarithe Symbola Foundation to launch an online platform designed to help bring Made in Italy online.
On the new platform, anybody, anywhere can discover hundreds of digital displays, stories, pictures, videos, and historical documents about Italian craftsmanship. Many of Italy’s most famous culinary and handcraft products are represented, from Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and Prosciutto di San Daniele ham to Murano glass and Montappone Hats. Little-known gems also can be uncovered such as Vercelli accordions and Ascoli Piceno lace. [...]

Il Marchese del Grillo the Movie: a real story with origin in Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Il Marchese del Grillo is a 1981 Italian comedy film directed by Mario Monicelli, starring Alberto Sordi as the titular character. The movie depicts some episodes of the life of a noble in the Rome of the early 19th century.
