Backstage. The world of fabric and costume, fashion in the Eighteenth Century
the last Friday of every month, at 11.00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
IMPORTANT NOTICE. We advise all visitors that Backstage is suspended during the month of August. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The extensive storerooms of Palazzo Mocenigo housing the rich collections of clothes, garments, accessories and fabrics offer the public an unusual visit to places that are usually only open for employees.
This is an opportunity that is not to be missed when visiting the museum and offers an itinerary through fashion in the eighteenth century with a specialised guide.
From April 2013, “Backstage”, for those who are interested, is integrated with the visit to the ancient weaving Tessitura Luigi Bevilacqua, where handmade fabrics are produced using models and frames from 18th-century and 19-century.
Visits in Italian and English are possible the last Friday of every month, at 11.00 am and 2.00 pm at Palazzo Mocenigo and at 11.00 am at the Tessitura Bevilacqua.
Reservation is necessary, at least the Monday before the date planned for the visit. The tour will be activated with a minimum of 8 participants (maximum 15 people).
Tickets can be purchased at the ticket office at the time of the visit.
