The tapestry museum was founded by Ugo Scassa in1957 in the renovated rooms of the historical Charterhouse of Valmanera. The laboratory produces tapestries using the ancient technique of the high-warp but the subjects are cartoons of modern contemporary artists (Casorati, De Chirico, Cagli, Klee, Mirò, Kandijnski and others). The combination between a technique which has remained the same over the centuries and that of modern day sensibility creates unique and precious works of art. Many are displayed in prestigious seats and others remain to adorn the gallery of the museum where one can mingle after having observed the patient work of the laboratory workers.
