A former paper mill

Overview

A design that promotes local history and tradition

The former Lefebvre paper mill in Isola del Liri, in the province of Frosinone, is a fascinating historical remnant. It is now part of the Museum of the Civilisation of Paper and Telecommunications, which narrates and showcases a local tradition inextricably linked with local resources. The paper mill, built in 1812 on top of an old convent, was bought by Carlo Lefebvre in 1830. Remaining in operation until 1913, it was eventually restored after a long period of neglect.

The structure today is a captivating combination of the past and the wilderness. A 54-metre-long steel bridge weighing 58 tonnes crosses the historic walls, between steep slopes and a picturesque waterfall, leading to the museum entrance. At the end of the footbridge, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the roaring waterfall and experience the sensation of feeling suspended in mid-air, in a faraway world full of charm. The steel, copper and glass roof system allows the large roof gardens to thrive.

The Museum of the Civilisation of Paper and Telecommunications offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable holiday to an area waiting to be rediscovered.
