Our friends, the silkworm and the silk
The Como Silk Museum is the only museum in the world able to show the visitor the entire production process, from silkworm to colourful yarns, from hand printing to fashion collections.
The Museum collects, treasures, displays machines, objects, documents, samples and instruments witnessing the glorious past of the textile industry that still nowadays rewards Como as the “City of Silk”.
The love and passion for silk have ancient origins, and nowadays, this technical and artistic heritage is organized in an educational area open to everybody.
