Florence

Museo della Fondazione Roberto Capucci

2 Costa San Giorgio
Florence, 50125, Italy
TEL: 39-055-2006-6209

Housed in the 17th-century Villa Bardini, this fashion museum showcases the innovative designs of world-renowned dressmaker Robert Capucci. After opening his own fashion house in Rome in 1950, Capucci made a name for himself creating wearable art influenced by Roman sculpture, architecture, and nature. Inspired by everything from hummingbirds to Doric columns, his work is typically defined by dramatic shapes and bold colors. The museum houses a collection of more than 400 Capucci dresses, along with 20,000 sketches and 40,000 photographs documenting his design process. The garments are displayed on a rotating basis and are organized by theme and period.

Insider Tip:

After visiting the museum, walk to the nearby Palazzo Pitti and check out the Costume Gallery, which houses rotating displays of garments dating from the 16th century to present day.
