Museo Ferragamo

Palazzo Feroni, Via dei Tornabuoni, Florence. Established in May 1995. The 12,000 examples of shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo, which belong to the Ferragamo business and the family archive, are shown in rotating displays, 200 pairs at a time. The displays tell the story of the extraordinary creativity, craftsmanship and style of the great maestro of shoemaking, from the 1920s until his death in 1960. The museum also shows and organizes various exhibitions: ‘Bruce Weber’ during the Florence Biennale in 1996, ‘Cenerentola’, curated by Stefania Ricci, Michael Howells and Jenny Beavan for the 1998 Biennale, and ‘Audrey Hepburn’ in Spring 1999.
