We visited Marta at the Museo-Laboratories di Tessitura a Mano Guiditta Brozzetti. She fascinated us with the history of her family's involvement with the production of woven fabrics in the traditional style of the area. We were impressed with the different looms she has (dating from the 1700's) and how they operate. What patience it must take to set up... More

This was an awesome place to visit. Working looms from the 1700-1800's in a church over 800 years old. Marta's passion for her craft is just as beautiful as the textiles that are created.

Great visit, Marta is so passionate about her craft, it's contagious! The beautifully handmade fabrics woven by a generations-old technique are spectacular; watching their creation on the looms gives new appreciation for their quality.

It is off the beaten track, but totally worth the visit. Here you will learn about the history of a local traditional (and dying) craft, and help to keep it alive! Amazing to see the technique, vision, and time that is necessary to weave!

This workshop is in an old church on the outskirts of the old city in Perugia, well worth finding. The ancient traditional methods of weaving are being preserved against the onslaught of mass manufacturing and cheap imports. This workshop is protecting the patrimony of Italian weaving tradition. The work is beautiful and historically important. Support it!

I visited a week ago with my husband and met the lovely Patrizia. She was very kind with her time and showed us her passion for this beautiful skill. The machines are amazingly intricate and the old church is wonderful. I was truly impressed with the work that they were able to achieve from these machines and bought a few... More

We were so impressed with Marta and what we learned from her! She is preserving the significant Umbrian weaving tradition almost single-handedly, and offers a fascinating experience! Even if your interest in weaving and textiles is minimal, you will come away with a great appreciation for the artistry and passion that she demonstrates. We recommend this experience highly.

Marta's workshop is located in the 13th-century church of San Francesco delle Donna, built on the place where St Francis was said to have lived in Perugia. Marta gave us an amazing tour. She certainly is enthusiastic about her work. She has several hand looms and seven Jacquard looms which were built in Italy in the 1830s. They previously belonged... More
