Piegaro Show map
Inside the village of Piegaro there is an imposing brick chimney which marks the location of the ancient glassmaking factory. Today it houses the Glass Museum or Museo del Vetro. The building itself is a fine example of industrial archaeology and its content tells the history of glassmaking in Piegaro from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. The highlight of the museum is its monument of molten glass, an homage to the industry that made this town famous. The museum organizes various educational activities for both adults and children.
