Marate – Museo del tessuto e del rame

In the ancient Convent of the Piarist Fathers dating back to the 17th century, with its long barrel-vaulted passageways and large white arches, there is the small and precious Maratè. A museum that hands down the art of Sardinian fabric and copper craftsmanship. A path that refers to the roots of the weavers’ fingers, hands from which the practices and knowledge of a unique tradition are born. The tools of work, the voices and secrets of women who have transformed a necessity into beauty. The tapestries and precious fabrics made with gold thread, copper, raffia, string, linen and wool are a testament to it. Isili, in the southern Sardinian hinterland, reflects the balance between innovation and history of an island.
