Mozzi Bardini Palace

The Mozzi Bardini Palace will become a museum in the future, but at present there are still works here and only the storage, the archive of photographs and documents and the offices. Alberto Boralevi has got a permission to take the group to visit the carpet storage and he has made a selection of 14 pieces to show. Most of them have been exhibited in 1999 for the first time and never again and there will be also few smaller fragments never seen before.

I am preparing an Exhibition of Pile Rugs and Kilim Fragments from my collection, that will be both at ground and upper floor of my gallery.’ said Alberto Boralevi to Jozan Magazine.
