Scuola di Merletti review Rate it

Currently undergoing a major revamp, the Lace School's rooms with painted wooden beams have cases full of elaborate examples of lace-work from the 17th century onwards. There are fans, collars and parasols, and some of the paper pattern-sheets that lace-makers use. The school that gives the museum its name is now virtually defunct, but museum authorities have promised that when the museum reopens, lace-makers will be regularly at work, displaying their handicraft to visitors.
