  • Mr. Enzo Chandler has shown, with his great passion, which you can also see something small like the silkworm. Indeed, more than the baco da seta, everything behind it. In fact the bug is the protagonist of an adventurous life that from small seed, becomes silk thread. In between is a laborious and careful process, which, step by step, leads to soft skeins of pure silk. It is a story explained with competence and great detail, that Mr. Enzo, will be more than happy to donate to curious visitors who, like me, were surprised by the interest aroused by a thin wire and resistant as silk. Very interesting visit, and presented in a well organized.

  • Go there on purpose, I wouldn't say, however, in the context is almost unique-at least for a vast territory.

  • The owner is a fan of silk and you can hear it also by precise descriptions and interesting. Very nice to see, even for someone who is no stranger to the world of textile production.

  • The Museum is opposite the rocca sforzesca in the complex that was once the old spinning mill of Soncino, namely where they were taken the silkworm cocoons, the skeins yarn and yarn produced which were then used for various purposes until before the war. The Museum is small but interesting because it collects all the tools used for this purpose, which offers a comprehensive overview of this task. There are also various cocoons and original prints and other materials. I come from a pole of silk industry and I don't need to explain but if you aren't aware, ask about a small guided tour (there are a couple of rooms!) and you will enjoy this little gem industry. You can also watch the video of the istituto Luce which while not covering Soncino is very attractive.

  • very interesting small museum managed by the curator a very competent person kind and that makes you discover a world long forgotten — the one on the production of the silkworm. Recommend a visit.
