Quirky/offbeat, Off the beaten path

Housed in the basement of Palazzo Spini Feroni—the grand, ramparted palace where Salvatore Ferragamo first set up shop and where the Ferragamo family still has its headquarters—this glittering jewel box of a museum is a testament to the rags-to-riches story of one of the world's most iconic shoe brands, and the perfect antidote to too much serious art. While regular temporary exhibits are held here, the permanent collection (which includes some 10,000 pairs of shoes) documents Salvatore's rise from poverty to become shoemaker to Hollywood royalty, along with examples of his work through the decades, including exquisite footwear made for stars such as Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn, John Wayne, and Ava Gardner.
