It is a largely didactic museum that reconstructs (with original documents and copies) several moments in the history of writing. The museum also documents the support material used in writing, like engraving and graffiatrice. A section is also dedicated to the history of numbers, where visitors can learn the ancient history of numeration, new forms of calculation, and then put them into practice by doing history and mathematical games, as well as games of logic.
