Twentieth century Elegant. Clothes and accessories from the Fineschi donation (Prato, 13 February - 29 May 2022) is the title of the new exhibition organized by the Textile Museum which inaugurates the exhibition program for the year 2022. It is a careful selection of over 80 objects among clothes and accessories for women and men that belonged to the Fineschi family - among the most active of the Prato entrepreneurial bourgeoisie since the mid-nineteenth century - collected over the last twenty years with care and passion by Ada Tirinnanzi, wife of Antonio Fineschi, holder of the family memory.

The entire collection, consisting of over 160 objects, was generously donated to the Museum in 2021, thus enriching its heritage, increasing the fashion and clothing section with objects ranging from the late nineteenth century to the nineties of the twentieth century and becoming everyone the effects of the city heritage.

The exhibition, curated by the curator of the Museum Daniela Degl'Innocenti with the collaboration of Valentina Sonnati, is set up in the evocative Hall of Ancient Fabrics of the Museum and presents about thirty clothes and about fifty accessories and clothing complements that are an expression of taste , of Italian fashion and social life, a fundamental testimony for the history of the territory and the history of Italian costume between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
