  • Backstage at the Museum among textiles and costumes

A highly unusual tour takes you from the exhibition rooms proper to lavishly-stocked storerooms which house an array of rare and precious fabrics as well as collections of articles that are a special feature of this museum – for example, sixteenth-century calcagnini, the amazingly high wedge-soled shoes that were a favourite with both courtesans and noblewomen.
