tessitriceThe hand weaving workshop
This new workshop, where traditional weaving is still carried out, is a development of the one founded by Maria Ciccotti in Campi.

The remains of the fulling and dyeworks
This is the workshop that Stefano Cianni founded in the first half of the 19th century for the final processing of hand woven cloth; here the cloth was washed, stiffened and dyed. The foundations and some walls are still visible as are some traces of the canal that brought the water supply from the nearby Capodacqua stream.

Most of these brick works were to be found around the lower slopes of Monte San Savino; in the areas now known as Isola, Fiano and Valdelati.

Resti del catino absidale di una fornaceThese all had particularly good clay deposits in conjunction with a plentiful supply of the wood that was essential for the furnaces. The ruins show the structure of the basin and the enormous chamber surrounded by thick walls which was used to fire the bricks.
