The exhibition of "Il vero volto di Leone XII"

Saturday, May 18th, 2013 in Fabriano, is inaugurated at the Pinacoteca civica "Bruno Molaioli", the exhibition "Il Volto Vero di Leone XII" will be presented at 10.30 a.m., at the Oratorio della Cari.

In the display a letter will be presented written on a sheet of paper watermarked with the coat of arms and the portrait of the Pope, produced in 1824, by Cartiere Miliani. The research carried out on the occasion of the exhibition at the Historical Archives of Cartiere Miliani Fabriano revealed that the paper was donated by Miliani to the Pope, who greatly appreciated the initiative, reciprocating the gift with a medal and authorisation for the production of paper. The Gianfranco Fedrigoni Foundation collaborated with the initiative by creating high resolution scans of the paper and the take-over of the watermark.
