Welcome to Papal Paper Mill Musem

The Papal Paper Mill represents and encloses some elements in itself that deeply characterizes the local territory. Built with travertine ashlars, the Papal Paper Mill overworked the Castellano stream race for the milling activities, paper production and tannery clothes for many centuries.

After many years of carelessness, the Province of Ascoli Piceno bought and restored the building, becoming a wonderful example of industrial archeology, unique in the territory.

Nowadays, it houses the Papal Paper Mill Museums, enriched in 2013 with the permanent exhibition “All the water of the world”, added to the Paper Museum and the Naturalistic historical Museum “Antonio Orsini”. It can be said that the Papal Paper Mill has become a very technological and scientific museum magnet.

Since January 2017, the Papal Paper Mill have haused the Contemporary History Library of Ascoli Piceno Province, named after Ugo Toria. For ten years the Library was included in SIP pole which collects 29 Libraries of Ascoli Piceno and Fermo Provinces. Specialized in Contemporary History, the Library stores about 18000 volums. You can also ask for book loans, even through Libraries. It also has confortable rooms. People working there can give you professional services, they also organize culture promotional activities.

Enjoy your visit!
