"50 oggetti + !" RETURNS
The iconographic exhibition “50 oggetti+!. Il grande gioco dell’industria” is back, curated by Francesca Molteni and organised by MUSEIMPRESA ‐Italian association for Corporate Archives and Museums. The travelling exhibition – which was inaugurated in Milan on 8th October 2015 for the first time , during the Expo in the City events counting over 20 thousand visitors – has been moved to the Museo Tornielli di Ameno (NO) from 1st July to 28th August. ” It tells the story of fifty objects that have been selected from the collections of the corporate archives and museums associated to Museimpresa, in cooperation with the curators.” Amongst the ‘50+! oggetti’, the “mould” as well, indispensible tool for the manufacturing of handmade paper, chosen as the icon to represent the history of the paper-manufacturing industry. In fact, the Fondazione G. Fedrigoni, Istituto Europeo di Storia della Carta e delle Scienze Cartarie (ISTOCARTA) foundation, that curates and manages the historical paper heritage of the paper- mill Cartiere Miliani Fabriano, has exhibited some ‘images’ of one of the 2,300 “moulds” that have been inherited by the paper-mill based in Fabriano. A one of a kind piece thanks to the technique implemented in its making, which reveals all the mastery of the papermakers from Fabriano and which tells the story behind a ‘Made in Italy’ company , which is well-known worldwide.
