The magic of silk is interpreted by the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum as a story of passion and beauty.
The SETA exhibition aims to tell the perfect union between creative flair and craftsmanship excellence, including by Ratti, who is behind the production of these exclusive accessories.
In fact, Italy has always distinguished itself in silk production. Since the 1930s, the city of Como has excelled in silk printing, contributing to the spread of “Made in Italy”.
Today, the printing of Ferragamo scarves is made in Como, by different textile industries, such as Ratti, chosen, from time to time, on the basis of the specialties in which they excel.
The exhibition is divided into four sections: the exotic world and the East, the flowers, animals and historical shoes made by Salvatore Ferragamo, to conclude, then, with the visualization of how these scarves, and therefore these inspirations, coexisted with the world of clothing.
SETA celebrates the happy intuition of Fulvia Ferragamo, who inherited the passion of her father Salvatore in the early 1970s by starting a continuous production of scarves and textile accessories animated by virtuous motifs, dreamlike scenes and imaginative patchworks made with rare skill. Objects of desire and true works of art rich in symbolism and influences from every country in the world, these extraordinary masterpieces project Ferragamo’s infinite creativity and craftsmanship excellence into that indissoluble link between fashion, art and culture that still deeply inspires today the ethics and aesthetics of the maison
