A 19th-century mill within the medieval walls is the evocative setting for displays that trace Prato’s 800 years as a center of the textile trade. Centuries-old Renaissance garb and other pieces from Prato and around the world, along with exhibitions that often focus on contemporary fashion, are set amid looms and huge weaving machines that were powered by water supplied by underground channels and once kept most of Prato employed.
