    New permanent exhibition:
    The tapestries made in Basel in the 15th century are among the most highly prized items in the entire collection. Some of these colourful depictions of social encounters, scenes of courtship, mythical creatures and «wild men» are heavily idealized renderings of real life, while others are pure fantasy. Some of them up to 6 m long, the tapestries are exhibited alongside related objects of everyday use such as glasses, furniture, coffrets and stove tiles. The aim is to anchor the tapestries in the everyday world of the Late Middle Ages.

  • 4 to 7 April 2013 First International Symposium for young lace makers in Pavia, Italy (south of Milan) "Doily-Free Zone: Raising the status of lace and lace making" . This symposium coincides with Milan Design Week.
    The symposium will be divided into three categories; Lace and Tradition, Lace and Design and Lace and Art and we are accepting proposals for papers, works of art and design, and workshops related to these themes.
    Proposals are to be sent to the attention of Angharad Rixon at no later than Saturday 31st March 2012 and the successful applicants will be contacted by Sunday 15th April 2012. A complete programme for the symposium and related events will be available in June 2012.
    For the purposes of this meeting we define lace as a fabric in which the open spaces are as fundamental to the design as the solid areas and where this is interplay of holes is an intrinsic part of the fabric’s structure, for this reason we will not accept proposals based on die or laser cut “lace patterns”.
    All lace makers who wish to present work or research papers must be under the age of 40 at the time of the symposium, this is not meant as discrimination but is rather an attempt to focus on the work of a generation which for various reasons is not associated with the major guilds and organizations. The symposium, however, will be open to all.

    visitate il nostro sito:
    A settembre la sala tessuti di Palazzo Madama sarà riallestita per ospitare la collezione di ricami. Avvicinandosi all’appuntamento, il museo organizza un corso di analisi dei ricami antichi: si imparerà a riconoscere i punti, i materiali e le modalità di esecuzione proprie del ricamo occidentale, dal medioevo a oggi.
    Le entrate derivanti dalle iscrizioni saranno utilizzate per restaurare un manufatto ricamato importante della collezione. Lo si potrà vedere, recuperato alla sua originaria bellezza, nell’allestimento di settembre.
