Salvatore Ferragamo Museum

Overview

The history of the Ferragamo brand

Located in Florence, in the medieval Spini Feroni Palace - the center of High Florentine society for centuries. The museum was opened to the public in 1995 by the Ferragamo family to showcase their global brand, known for footwear and leather goods as an example of Made in Italy products.

The exhibition space consists of seven rooms with a collection of 10,000 footwear models designed by Ferragamo.

The real jewel of the museum is the historical collection, exhibited across two rooms. It boasts a selection of shoes from the late 1920s up to 1960, showing the search for natural materials, such as the famous cork "wedge", then replicated all over the world. The remaining five rooms host temporary exhibitions, displaying unique pieces and footwear created for some of Hollywood's greatest actresses such as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.
