Testimonianza del rinascimento a Castelvetro

Along with the historical re-enactments of Festa a Castello (Party at the Castle) and Dama Vivente (Living Draughts), the Fili d’Oro Museum bears witness to the strong link between Castelvetro di Modena and the Renaissance.

It is a permanent exhibition of Renaissance-style clothes organised by the Associazione Dama Vivente. It recently obtained the patronage of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.

In the exhibition, the clothes used during historical re-enactments can be admired. Their fine embroideries, silk, satin and velvet fabrics, feathered hats and hairstyles can be observed, set in a fascinating and splendorous atmosphere. This atmosphere surrounded the young poet Torquato Tasso, who was hosted in 1564 at the court of the Rangoni family in Castelvetro.
