  • Restored building that looks a lot like an old factory, however very interesting and comprehensive. is located in the former woolen mill in Stia, which retains the charm of ancient times. Unfortunately due to time constraints we did not visit the inside!

  • The Museo dell'arte della Lana is located Is in what was the old mill, which has been carefully restored. The Museum is divided into sections: "an art as old as mankind", "nature", "the art of Wool fibers: the phases of craftsmanship", "wool the wool mill of Stia" and "phases of industrial processing of wool". But the Museum is born, especially, to make known the famous "Casentino cloth". This was, but it still is, a typical product of handicraft casentinese. Was built as early as the middle ages and was distinguished by being "big, tough, wiry, coarse, hard"; was used by herders, woodcutters, barrocciai, labourers. Today, thanks to coloration, especially for the strong shades of red, Orange and green, and the so-called "curl", became a product of the highest quality.

  • Interesting Museum to the material on display. An exhibition in the history of weaving wool that gives many teaching suggestions, both for experts and for the visitor. To be enhanced further, with a scheduled communication and open to the community, not just the local one.

  • History, business, art and culture. The foresight and tenacity of those who yesterday was not afraid to look ahead and to confront the world. An example and a warning for small "captains courageous" of today. Not to be missed.
