Addresses and contacts

The Museum of Scales and Balances, unique in its kind in Italy, documents the history of weighing from the Middle Ages to the present day: balances, platform scales, steelyards and a rich collection of documentary material such as posters, catalogues, original prints and photographic reproductions of old materials. The Museum is directly connected to the local productive area, at the same time constituting both a source of historical memory and a propulsive nerve centre of historical, technical and scientific knowledge.

Campogalliano: Town of Scales
The Museum is closely linked to the local territory, constituting both a source of historical memory and a nerve centre of historical, technical and scientific knowledge. It is easy to understand its involvement in the urban fabric, for the town of Campogalliano is called the "Città della Bilancia" (the town of scales), as visitors may read on the welcome guidepost.
