Tapestries and Cloths
Tapestry in polychrome wool and silk, 16th century
Tapestry in polychrome wool and silk, 16th century

The Museum hosts some original and elaborate hand-woven textiles from the 18th century.

They are around seventy exemplaries of different kinds: tapestries, curtainings, passementeries, strings and bows.

The Foundation has many pieces that represent an interesting excursus of the development of the textiles and the furnishing taste. In the collection, there are also 14 valuable woolen and silk tapestries from the Flemish school, dated between the second half of the Sixteenth century and the beginning of the Seventeenth century.

The scenes are taken from the Bible, but the episodes are difficult to identify. The main characters wear classic-oriental clothes while the characters from the secondary episodes on the back wear clothes according to the fashion of that time.
