Museo del Merletto

this site is into circuit :



The museum, which opened in 1981, is located in the rooms of the historic Scuola dei Merletti of Burano, founded in 1872 by countess Andriana Marcello for the recuperation and revival of a centuries-old tradition. And thus the Museo del Merletto was born. More than one hundred exemplars from the school's rich collection are on display, as well as significant examples of Venetian production from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. A member of the Musei Civici di Venezia since 1995, this space offers not only the chance to admire highly valuable pieces but also the opportunity to observe lace-making first-hand, watching the lace-makers at work mornings in the museum.
