of note

Near this piazza are little shops, some that sell stationary with ties to the region's centuries old paper mills. The ancient tools and machinery from the 14th century can still be seen at Museo Della Carta. Dairies and journals, made in the old tradition, have signature watermarks signifying their connection to the past. Perhaps Mr. Wilde purchased a few of his favorites here...
