The Costume Gallery
The Costume Gallery
You'll find the Costume Gallery In the heart of Palazzo Pitti, in the small building of the Meridiana. It is the first state-operated museum dedicated entirely to study and preservation of costumes, accessories, and fabrics.
Founded in 1983 by Kristen Aschengreen Piacenti, the Costume Gallery preserves a collection of more than 6,000 items, including ancient and modern garments, accessories, and costumes for the theater and the cinema of great historical value.
The Costume Gallery is a unique museum whose center is the famous Medici collection, among the world’s oldest, made up of the burial clothes worn by Cosimo I Grand Duke of Tuscany, his wife Eleonora de Toledo, and their son Don Garzia, all restored in the museum’s own restoration shops.
Preservation needs dictate the biennial rotation of costumes on display in the 13 exhibition rooms. This constant costume change makes the Gallery a living institution bustling with new ideas and events, and allows the public to experience “new” costumes on a regular basis.
A particular section of the Gallery hosts the fascinating Flora Wiechmann Savioli Collection, with jewelry created by the artist from 1958 to 1968. Made of steel, silver, and other “poor” metals, the pieces are all hand-worked with simple, modern, and geometric lines.
A significant place is also reserved for contemporary costume, with selected nuclei representing the greatest protagonists of international high fashion and prêt-à-porter, such as Worth, Poiret, Vionnet, Capucci, Missoni, Valentino, Pucci, Ferrè, and Yves Saint Laurent, to name only a few.
Once a confirmation code has been assigned to your reservation, we can refund the cost of unused tickets, also for no-shows, minus a service fee (reservation fee and online booking fee).
