A story about precious leathers
Category Icon
Italian Art and Culture

Admire Italian artisans’ uniqueness and the attention to detail of Italian-made leather objects from the 15th-16th century, from cases for weapons to the flask for gunpowder and the wheel at the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum, an historic house-museum that is the fruit of the extraordinary collecting experience of two brothers at the end of the 19th century: Barons Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi.

Those curious enough about leather processing techniques can visit the Giòsa workshop, an atelier combined with a showroom that overlooks in the Brera district, to approach the working of fine leathers such as the delicate art of hand-working crocodile, ostrich, lizard and other precious ones.
