Poli Grappa museum library
The principal beginning from which the Museum had its origin is made up of a collection of ancient and modern books related to Grappa and the art of distillation. Among the most important works, the “Liber de arte distillandi” by Hieronymus Brunschwigh dated 8th May 1500 is worthy of mention, being the first printed text on the subject.
Universities and research
The Poli Grappa Museum promotes the publication via web of degree and doctorate theses, thus offering internet users the opportunity to consult original scientific material on the production, market, history, tasting and culture of Grappa, the Italian marc distillate.
The publication of these theses and the free availability of their content are designed to facilitate access to knowledge and encourage opportunities for exchange, contact and dialogue among the scientific community, distillers and Grappa aficionados.
The content of interest regards all aspects related to methodologies and techniques for producing Grappa, as well as the economic, cultural and historical aspects concerning both its production and consumption.
Invitation to authors
Authors are invited to provide an electronic or hardcopy version of their degree or doctorate dealing with the content of interest, for publication on the Poli Grappa Museum website.
Those published will become part of the “Degree thesis and specialist studies” section of the Library’s bibliographical catalogue.
