The exhibition presents works of art made on Fabriano paper by artists such as Michelangelo, Roy Lichtenstein, Beethoven, Francis Bacon and Fellini, which are housed in museums and archives around the world.
Modernity comes, instead, from the banknote production techniques and the materials used for watermarks. A space is also dedicated to the relationship between the paper and art, through the presentation of works by great artists, including Bruno Munari, who also worked on Fabriano paper.
