Museo della Paglia e dell’Intreccio Domenico Michelacci

Straw and Wickerwork Museum Domenico Michelacci

At the beginning of the 18th century, Domenico Michelacci started producing straw goods on an industrial scale, and until the 1950s Signa was the manufacturing centre for straw hats (the celebrated ‘straw hat of Florence’).

In the museum, which also mounts temporary exhibitions, there are straw and wickerwork objects in a range of materials; work tools and machines; historic photos and artworks; and a selection of hats dating from the end of the 19th century to 1970.

In compliance with the measures included in the Italian Government Decree of November 4th 2020, the museum is currently closed.
