Filatoio Rosso di Caraglio textile museum

Towers and seventeenth-century walls make it look like a castle, but it’s actually the oldest remaining silk factory in Europe; it’s located in Caraglio, in the province of Cuneo. The breeding of silkworms and its processing in the spinning wheel have taken up the area’s labour until the 1930s. Having become a barracks during the Second World War, the spinning wheel was restored in the 1990s and brought to new life. Inside, in addition to the historical archives, there’s the Piedmontese Silk Factory Museum. An incredible collection of reproductions of hydraulic silk twisters, used for the creation of the renowned Piedmontese organzine, which the merchants of the 1700s called “the finest silk” in the whole continent.
