The building housing the Lazzerini Library, the historic "Cimatoria Campolmi Leopoldo e C.," is a monument of industrial archaeology and the only large nineteenth-century factory built within Prato's medieval city walls. The architectural complex constitute the city's main cultural centre; the Museum occupies half of the space, about 4000 square metres, while the other half houses the "A. Lazzerini" Municipal Library. The former Campolmi Textile Mill is perhaps the most important example of industrial archaeology within the Province of Prato. The large 8500 square metre complex located within the historic centre had been a site of textile manufacture since the Middle Ages
