Example of abandoned industrial heritage, later recovered, focused on the company history

Comparisons are always a bit unpleasant; but I cannot fail to point out that, having visited both this museum and the “Textile Museum” in Prato just a few weeks away, I found the former more valuable (while not despising the latter). The wool production process is in fact illustrated here in great detail, in the same environments in which the actual processing took place (approximately from the mid-19th century to the beginning of this millennium) and by plenty of authentic machinery, formerly used for processing. The visitor then comes out with the pleasant feeling of having learned things he didn't know before about this activity. The main limitation of this museum in my opinion is instead that of the weak connection of its educational path with the events of the Tuscan wool industry in the long term. This limit is all the more evident as the name of the museum, "dell’arte della lana" (of the wool guild) recalls the glorious manufacturing tradition of Florence in the Middle Ages; when - the historian Giovanni Villani (1275-1348) wrote - one hundred English monasteries provided the raw material for the wool industry of that city. The visitor who therefore wants to fully understand why a factory (and therefore a museum) like this is located in this remote corner of the Apennines and not in Florence, cannot limit himself to following the museum itinerary - which focuses on the history of this factory - but will have to take into consideration, for example, a documented paper by the historian A. Zagli (2022), available on the web - only in Italian - entitled "Note sull’industria della lana in Casentino fra Seicento e Settecento" (Notes on the wool industry in Casentino between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries). From it the reader will deduce among other things that starting from 1600, due to the intense international competition, the role of Florence as a textile city rapidly decays, so advantaging peripheral territories of Tuscany better equipped in local resources: sheep in abundance, included in a cycle of transhumance; abundant running water; wood to heat the tubs in which the fabrics are dyed. Among these territories the Casentino (ie the region in which Stia is located) stands out. In any case, the Middle Age leading role of the Tuscan wool industry in Europe is irretrievably lost.

Antonio Damiano Ricci Vidus (great-grandson of Adamo Ricci) I would like to add some important notes on the Lanificio di Stia. Pioneers of the Casentino textile industry were the Riccis who transformed this activity from artisanal to industrial, becoming the most famous Italian entrepreneurs in the sector for over two hundred years, reaching the peak of notoriety and production capacity in the mid-nineteenth century thanks to Adamo Ricci, founder of the tradition textile. Since 1798, under Pietro di Tommaso Ricci, the Ricci dynasty, wool workers who continued and renewed the Casentino textile tradition, became industrially extinct in 1894 with the sale of the Lanificio di Stia.

Really nice place, but I have to give 4 stars, because the prices are a bit excessive.
The guides are also very nice.

The structure and displays are very beautiful and the museum interesting. What I find missing are the explanations to make it clear what some industrial machinery is for. There are videos but if you are not familiar with the work you cannot understand the process. It's a shame because the museum is very beautiful.
And a few sessions along the way wouldn't be bad, and would help you enjoy the visit more!
