The Museum is housed in an old factory of the first dl ' 900, the Coricama, a real example of industrial archeology.

  • Opened in the late 1990s, this Museum, where you can trace the history of the blacksmith, is a little gem. The first part of the exhibition offers the reconstruction of blacksmith work environments, from antiquity to the present day, and is very interesting for children. The second part is more technical, focusing on raw materials and metal processing stages. The visit ends, finally, with a section dedicated to the ancient tradition of the Cutlers of Maniago cutlery factories.

  • Maniago, Friuli millennial city famous since the middle ages for the production of knives to the point that it deserves (along with Toledo) called the world capital of cutlery, boasts one of the finest museums devoted to the history of cutlery. Housed in a former factory renovated properly, the Museum of knives, Blacksmith and cutlery in Maniago documents the area's steel working in factories and technological evolution that occurred over the years within them. Is divided into three sections through which visitors can learn about the significant moments in the history of the blacksmith: battiferro, formation of the artisan shop inside the home (18th century), establishment of the first workshops at the beginning of the twentieth century. The Museum is one of the attractions of Maniago, noble city of the foothills Pordenone that enchants guests with the Majesty of the town. A historic centre that develops around Italy Square, a real gem with beautiful 19th century fountain and all around churches and palaces. The most famous is the Palace of the counts of Attimis with the beautiful Loggia on the façade and the fresco of a lion marciano artwork of Pomponio Amalteo holding under your paw the coat of arms. A work that testifies to the good relations between Venice and the counts of Maniago. The same Amalteo achieved splendid in the apse of the Duomo di Maniago dedicated to Saint Maurus the martyr. Classic example of late Gothic architecture. The Cathedral, which is seen in a charming central square, cherishes a faded frescoes, the preziosio triptych, altars, some holy water and the beautiful baptismal font. Palazzo d'attimis Maniago-Maniago, former residence of the House from the 18th century and overlooking Piazza Italy, is a complex of buildings protected by the Istituto Regionale per le Ville Venete, composed of a central building, stables and barns. Beautiful la loggetta and dating back to 1600, built to replace an earlier building at the center of the square, used for meetings of Heads of families and destroyed. This Loggia was used over time as the seat of the Court and of the city market. Today is the monument dedicated to the fallen of all wars. At the rear of the Palazzo d'attimis, there is a splendid courtyard with an immense Park consisting of an Italian garden and an English-style park of 7 hectares, which the Palace all the way to the foot of the Castle.

  • The Museum is located inside the former spinning mill Cadel, built in 1922 and aims is the illustration of the systems to which you used in the past for machining steel in factories in Maniago, both the technological evolution that occurred over time within them. Through playing Smithies, of environments and workshops, the Museum wants to revive the visitor a technological reconstruction of the history of cutlery, linked through the centuries to the different energy supply. Originally, in fact, towards the middle of the fifteenth century, were the waterfalls (one is visible just behind the former textile mill) to produce the necessary energy to the work of the company; in the 18th century, however, more refined the technique to work, was the human energy to develop and disseminate in the country the production of cutting tools. In these shops you produce sharpeners, scissors, table knives, grafting, snap, multipurpose pocket and a wide range of surgical instruments. With the advent of electricity, becomes finally possible ganged machining by the use of specific machines (the workshop), greatly increasing the work capacity. The first factory (the Marx & c.) is built in Maniago in the years preceding the first world war. The Museum is divided into three sections that represent the significant moments in the history of the work of the Smiths:-the formation of the company; -training workshop, which starts in 18 ^ century inside of housing:-the establishment of the first workshops at the beginning of 1900
