Arte della Lana Museum is located in the complex of the woollen mill of Stia in Casentino, which was restored after decades in a state of abandon.
A journey in the history of the Art of wool from the beginnings of human civilisation until the Industrial Revolution and the golden age of the Woollen mill of Stia.
Nowadays the plant, as a wonderful sample of industrial archaeology, comes back to life not as a production plant but as a cultural centre related to the textile industry of this area. The exhibition path is a real sensory experience, where you can touch, smell, listen, learn, experiencing first-hand the craftsmanship of some gestures linked to the Art of wool.

Here you can see 2 videos to have an idea about the production of famous Panno Casentino today: Protected content
