Who knew? While the mention of Italy may elicit visions of exquisite wine, decadent cuisine, magnificent art and legendary vistas, the country has a history
rich in textiles. The tradition of weaving on hand looms dates back hundreds of years and has evolved into a modern industry adapting designs from the Renaissance. The town of Como,
situated on the shores of idyllic Lake Como, is considered to be the heart of silk history and production in Italy. It's relationship with silk dates back more than 4,000 years and is now
Italy's largest silk producer and home to Educational Silk Museum. There is even a working alpaca farm in the serene Umbrian counrtyside. From hands- on fiber arts workshops to wine and
olive oil tasting; visiting medieval walled villages to optional private cooking classes, we will immerse ourselves in the best of everything! Come and experience the creative side of Italy that most
don't even know about.
