In the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the Museum of Wool Art, as "Anchor Point" within ERIH (European Route of Industrial Heritage), dedicates a day to the theme of water, a fundamental resource for operating machinery of the Lania di Stia.

 

The dependence of energy derived from water has been maintained throughout the lifetime of the Wool Mill through continuous renovations and modifications of the internal systems of the various buildings.

The Lanificio di Stia thus becomes the mirror capable of reflecting the evolution of a transversal technology that has involved the processing of wool throughout Europe.
