The Museum of Scales was born thanks to the passion of Velio Ortolanian extraordinary collector who has provided a part of his unusual andsignifcant collection of scales and weights. His collection is one of the most important in Europe by type, history, and number of pieces. Inside the halls of the museum there are about 150 different objects that allow us to trace more than 600 years in the history of scales, from small Renaissance models to big industrial weighing machines of the 20th century. The theme of the museum, interactive and fun for children, leads to the discovery of ancient professions such as taxmen, money changers and industrial or agricultural activities such as breeding of silkworms. « less
