Museo dell’Arte del Cappello

Map

The Museum is located inside the former Panizza hat factory that was set up in 1881 and produced fine fur felt hats until 1981. Documents and images of the time, ancient tools for the manual production of felt hats and historic machinery, samples of hats, advertising posters and factory trademarks, reveal the history and activity of the hat factory. The hats produced by Panizza are supported by explanations relating to the secrets of felting, a selection of hats of various periods and by the “Vittorio Fesce” collection of ethnic hats.
