Museo del Tissuto 

Prato Textile Museum is Italy’s largest centre for the study, conservation and exhibition of historic and contemporary textiles. Textile Museum was opened in 1975 in the Textile Technical Institute “Tullio Buzzi”, as a cultural institution for the recovery of the local productive history, that dates from the 12th century, and to support training in the sector of textile design. Contemporary, the Museum represents a centre of promotion of the textile production of Prato district, that district comprises 8000 companies employing 40,000 people. In May 2003 the Museum found its definitive location in the restored Ex Cimatoria Campolmi, a factory which stands as a symbol of the textile manufacturing history of the area.
