During this experience we can know the beautifull silk’s world

A short but concise term, sweet and disruptive. Yet behind these four alphabetical signs they lie centuries of history, and not only. Silk is known to be always a luxury fabric, used to make clothes, the garments, and damasks of the rich and powerful people. From the twelfth century the Italian peninsula was the largest producer of silk Europe. In particular in the Calabrian region the production of gold wire was flourishing. The city of Catanzaro was considered the capital of silk, and around it had formed a production circuit which drew a Calabrian “Silk Way”, a corridor that connected the Tyrrhenian coast to the Ionian. In the surrounding areas were produced mulberries and raw silk (by rural households), while in Catanzaro workshops were doing weaving. The fame of silk weavers masters of Catanzaro caused quite a stir which spread to France, where the latter were called to Lyons to teach the technique of weaving. According to some sources, in the State Archives of Catanzaro, the peasant families of San Floro, a small village just outside the capital of Calabria, at the end of the 800 they raised million silkworms, the indigenous race, producing about 1,400 kg of cocoons.
