Costume Gallery Florence

The Costume Gallery, a section of the Museo degli Argenti, has been housed since 1983 in the small neoclassic building of the Meridiana of Pitti Palace with access to Boboli garden. The showcases have been arranged in the historical Lorena/Savoy environment furnished with furniture and paintings which reflect the interior decoration carried out in 1861 for the arrival of Vittorio Emanuele II.

Through a series of clothes which are characteristic of each period, the exhibition illustrates the evolution of fashion in the 18th century until about 1930. In the wall show cases there can be found accessories and linen.

The costumes are changed alternately every two years, with similar and coeval ones, coming from the rich depository of the same gallery. The ballroom la the place where frequent exhibitions are held on subjects concerning the history of fashion.
