  • From 1633, this wheel of wood from five meters in diameter was used to return the ancient fabrics, hemp and cotton. The wheel and the counterweight to press weigh 5 tons each. So, to operate the wheel of wood, it is to introduce in the middle of the wheel one or two workers who walk makes move stone between the two rollers of wood. In this way, the paintings of fabric are stretched and pressed both. Very clever than human-powered winch! Print shop matrices are made of pear wood because it's a very hard wood. The Marchi workshop contains hundreds of matrix. Molds made of wood are all carved by hand with various designs. The decorative symbol of Romagna is most often used. The paintings are especially printed with the colors of "Rust" according to a secret guarded process. We attended the know-how of the craftsman to the technique of engraving in wood affixed to the fabric and struck with a mallet in the workshop. Once printed, the fabric will be submitted to the clamping of color in a special bath. Shop you can get several items such as tablecloths, placemats as well as dishes. Since we were a group of 48 people, visiting the Museum occurred in two stages. Half of the Group took part in the tour and for others we had a bit of free time to visit the surroundings of the village and vice and versa. Very nice tour. It is forbidden to take pictures inside the workshop. We are given a postcard illustrating the principle of the wheel and the counterweight as a souvenir. Guided tour ($)
