The Echo-Museum can be well-defined as an “open-air museum”, where nature, culture, history and traditions become primary factors, excellence resources worth to be restored and enhanced, because they are appreciated by the local community they belong to. That’s the reason why the Town-hall Administration has decided to invest on the recovery of the historical memory of a community which is rich of ancient traditions and habits, partially forgotten, not only through relevant works of restoration and musealization- the Nonii Arii roman villa, the paper mills of Maina Superiore and Gatto, but also through the publication of this easy and detailed guide, a valid
knowledge tool made available for the local population
and for tourists. A special thanks to the Lombardy

The Echo-Museum of Toscolano Maderno’s Paper- Mills’ Valley, which overlaps with the territory of the two ancient hamlets of Toscolano and Maderno, today united, has as its fulcrum the Paper-Mills’ Valley, which from the Middle-Age to the 1900s has represented the crucial point both for economical and social life of the local community. It is clearly identified and marked by landscape, environmental, socio-economic, historical and cultural identity features which, as centuries passed by, made of it an unique and unrepeatable microcosm, an “unicum” worth to be preserved and enhanced not only for those who come here during the summer season, but also to natives who, in fact, prove to be the first users of the richness that the territory of the Echo-Museum offers during the whole year. The Echo-Museum is a participated development project created by the local communities, which is finalized to the tutelage of the historic, cultural and environmental inheritance. It pursues the social gathering and the intergenerational dialogue, aiming to the recovery of the technical knowledge and of traditional manual skills, to the correct relationship between consumption and renovation of resources.
