Arte Moderna

Its pure white colour accentuates the chromatic contrasts in the artworks, the natural texture is a versatile surface for pigments, suitable for all techniques, whether dry or wet or both on the same sheet.



Created to highlight the brightest ideas

Arte Moderna paper is made on a cylinder mould machine using a traditional process. Its 100% high quality cotton fibre composition and its natural surface make the paper very versatile and ideal for all art techniques.
Its brilliant white colour intensifies the colours being applied, while the absence of acids and chlorine derivatives in its processing ensures that this paper is resistant to UV yellowing and ensures long-lasting performance.



Acid Free

Magnani 1404 papers are completely acid-free and produced in a neutral environment. This not only provides greater UV resistance, but also promises a long lifespan.

Long Life

Our ISO 9706 compliant papers, which are labelled “LONG LIFE” or permanent, provide a guarantee of the paper’s physical and chemical stability over time. The standard requires a minimum level of alkaline reserve, such as calcium carbonate, to neutralise any acids present. It also sets a maximum limit for easily oxidised substances and must be produced in an acid free environment.

Oba Free

The acronym “OBA” stands for “Optical Brighteners Agent”, chemical substances used during the production process to make paper look whiter and brighter. We avoid the use of these optical brighteners in Magnani 1404 papers because they can degrade over time, compromising not only their brightness, but also effectively changing the colour of the paper itself.

The Cylinder Mould Machine

Magnani 1404 papers are produced exclusively on a cylinder mould machine: this traditional production process mimics the hand-crafting techniques of the master papermakers of days gone by, coming as close as possible to the quality of handmade paper. Production is slower than on the flatbed mill, allowing the fibres to settle evenly, resulting in smooth, even paper.

The Raw Materials

We use only natural fibres from sustainable sources, such as cotton or alpha cellulose. Cotton is a key raw material in our art paper production process: its long fibres provide extraordinary flexibility, strength and absorbency, giving the paper a distinctive quality. Plus, as it is lignin free, cotton naturally makes the paper more resistant to yellowing.
