The MIAMI University returns to visit ISTOCARTA
About twenty students from the Dept. of Chemical, Paper and Biomedical Engineering from MIAMI University , Oxford (OH), along with their professor D. Steven Keller, were hosted by the Fondazione G. Fedrigoni, Istituto Europeo di Storia della Carta e delle Scienze Cartarie (ISTOCARTA) foundation on Wednesday 13 January 2016 . Prof. Keller and his students already had occasion to appreciate Fabriano and the paper-heritage under the custody of ISTOCARTA, in 2014.
The group was greeted and accompanied throughout the visit by the foundation Vice-Chairman , Mr. Giancarlo Castagnari, and Coordinator, Mrs. Livia Faggioni, and given the opportunity to admire the works of art inherited by Cartiere Miliniani Fabriano: the Archive with its documents dating back to 1782, over2,300 moulds, 1,200 wire-cloths, as well as the entire historic heritage. A visit was then made to the plant at Pioraco (Cartiera FABRIANO Fedrigoni SpA) where the students were given the opportunity to speak directly to technicians there.
