MIC • International Shoe Museum


musei4.pngThe ‘’Pietro Bertolini” shoe museum in Vigevano is the only public museum in Italy dedicated to the history and evolution of shoes. Situated in the suggestive, fifteenth-century setting of the Sforzesco Castle, the museum sets out to express, through its narration of the shoe, both the history and economy of Vigevano and the international evolution of the shoe as a design and fashion object. It has different thematic sections: history, fashion and design, ethnic, curiosity and a whole section focusing on story to the stiletto heel, born in Vigevano, from 1953 up today. Vigevano is famous throughout the world for its shoe-making tradition, an ancient trade documented in the Borough Statute dating back to 1392.
