The Fabric of Dreams is a Master of 500-hour costumes (with visits to museums, tailors and companies), led by three talents of the international Costume Design: Carlo Poggioli, Gabriella Pescucci and Alessandro Lai. A journey at the highest levels, between learning and production experience, with the support of great professionals, expert craftsmen and companies that make Italian creativity famous throughout the world. All in the amniotic liquid of the Tuscan landscape and its great figurative heritage, and in the trace of the history of Cosimo I and Eleonora da Toledo, icons of the great tradition of the ‘500 Florentine.
A unique experience, next to great masters, to create exceptional pieces for a new museum set-up
