The museum and the library

An experiential route

Within Borgo Antico San Vitale runs an experiential route dedicated to spirits which enables visitors to appreciate their history to the full.

To date, the following sections are operative:

  • the historical picture of the old “borgo”;
  • the evolution of the alembic in 3500 years of history, with a real-size reconstruction of the first alembic found in Mesopotamia and with subsequent ones represented on large copper bas-reliefs;
  • the evolution of the alembic for the different spirits made in the world from 1800 to the present day, by means of large tablets.

Olfactory theme routes are also being organised which will enable visitors to discover the aromas of the spirits, the types of wood in which they are stored and the medicinal herbs used in their production.
