The Pia Università dei Cartai is the direct continuation of the glorious medieval corporation, interpreter of the century-old paper manufacturing  tradition, heir and propagator of the most authentic and distinctive  values of the history and economy of Fabriano.

Following in the steps of ancient tradition, the University is run by Capitano dell’Arte, position which has always been occupied by a representative of the Cartiere Fabrinesi, supporter of the century-old institution. In keeping with its antique ideals and statutory objectives,  the Pia Università dei Cartai reaffirms its intention to preserve and to pass on the Art of papermaking by spreading learning techniques, thus guaranteeing the historic memory of future generations.
