A wunderkammer of silk prints by Ferragamo
Until 1950, the Ferragamo name was synonymous with women’s footwear. The brand’s founder, Salvatore, dreamed of transforming his internationally renowned brand into a fashion label that dressed a woman from head to toe. And his dream came true: it was one of his daughters, Fulvia, who launched in the 1970s the continuous production of women’s and men’s silk accessories with personalized patterns characterized by exclusive decorative subjects, especially flowers and exotic animals. This creative world overflows with inspirational references, from oriental art to twentieth-century paintings or ancient tomes on botany. At the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo you can explore the universe of printed fabrics, ties and scarves combined with the sources of inspiration for each motif – whether it be a book, a painting, vase or sculpture.
