Keeping Tradition Alive at Stamperia Artigiana Marchi

Second stop of the day was to the beautiful town of Santarcangelo. We visited Stamperia Artigiana Marchi, where they use the only mangono (a hamster-wheel like machine used by humans) in the world to iron the cloth typical of Emilia-Romagna. Then they print patterns on the cloth with stamps (some date back to the 1600s).
