Between Art and AVANT-GARDE
PALAZZO MOCENIGO - PERFUME MUSEUM
In 1985 Palazzo Mocenigo in Venice – home of the aristocratic Mocenigo- family – was opened to the public as a museum, housing the Study Centre of the History of Fabrics and Costumes and the vast collections of fabrics and clothes belonging to the Venice Civic Museum.
The museum’s focus on the history of fashion has inspired the creation of a new section dedicated to perfume, a particular aspect of the history of Venetian costume, highlighting the key role played by the city in the origins of this aesthetic, cosmetic and entrepreneurial tradition.
In the five rooms dedicated to perfume, multimedia equipment and sensory experiences alternate in a new path of information, enjoyment and study.
