Museum of Textile Machinery
the permanent exhibition
Industrial weaving is a professional and cultural wealth to be made known, and to keep current. There is a museum dedicated to this "art", which through machines tells a story of the entrepreneurial capacity, on which a more recent history of the city of Valdagno and the surrounding area is based.
Weaving is presented in its technical details: from different fibres, processes, such as carding and combing, down to looms and the manufacture of textiles, which developed over time.
The interactive part provides workshops, where visitors can experience the creation of a small fabric woven on a hand loom.
The museum is enriched with the industrial and social history of Valdagno with a presentation of the "Social City", built by Gaetano Marzotto for employees of the growing textile company.
