Como Silk Museum

The manufacture of silk was established at Como by the early 16th century, and the city has always been the leading centre for the industry, in which Italians made many important innovations. The museum shares the premises of the Setificio, the textile school, and includes sections, all with original equipment or machines, relating to silkworms, the many stages of preparing silk yarn, weaving, dyeing and printing. Many historic sites in the surrounding region were concerned with the manufacture of silk.
