Montefibre Archive

The library collection of the Technical Library of the Montefibre Plant Research Centre in Porto Marghera, which was donated to BAS in August 2010 and subsequently named Fondo Montefibre (Montefibre Archive), is of particular value and historical interest.

It consists of 978 items, of which 708 books and 35 journals, both Italian and foreign, published between 1920 and 2000 – whose subject fields concern material science (polymers, fibres, analytical techniques), chemical engineering and the study of textile production plants and processes.

As a testament to the area's industrial vocation in the textile/chemical field, it is preserved on the original shelves in the museum area of the library, which also displays some samples of artefacts from the factory.
