The collection of the Museum of the Writing reconstructs, with original finds and reproductions from national archaeological museums, the stages of the history of writing and the evolution of the supports on which it has been preserved: stone, clay, papyrus, wax tablets and parchment, up to today’s technological supports.

The didactic path is flanked by specific workshops that explore the Egyptian writing, the Etruscan, the medieval scriptorium, printing with the press and cave paintings. In the Museum there is also the section dedicated to the History of the Numbers where it is reconstructed the evolution of the ancient ways of numbering.

The museum, in San Miniato Basso, is part of the Museum System of San Miniato.
