THE STORY

I am a felt maker and a milliner who has turned her passion for hats in my job. My creations are unique pieces made by hand following ancient techniques and tools of the past. I produce hats, hairstyles for ceremony and special events but also fashion accessories and home decorations. The techniques I use are those of the craft felt, where wool is felted by hand with hot water and soap, and the technique of classical millinery where cones of felt and straw are shaped on wooden forms, precious objects and at the same time beautiful working tools to collect. My lab is the place where I gather inspiration, tools and materials that I love, it is my bubble of space and time where my mind goes blank and leaves open space to creativity. If you want to come visit my lab, it will be my pleasure to tell you about my wonderful job.

VISIT

IL CAPPELLO ED I SUOI SEGRETI

Maria-Federica, milliner

Apertura del laboratorio alle visite. Vi racconterò del mio mestiere e vi offrirò una panoramica sui suoi segreti. Racconterò come nasce un cappello fatto a mano, vi mostrerò i materiali di cui è fatto, gli attezzi e le forme che si usano per modellarlo. Potrete vedere e toccare utensili antichi e saperne di più su un mestiere ormai raro. Parleremo dei diversi modelli di cappello da uomo e da donna e di etichetta e galateo. Una pausa interessante di circa un'ora fra una giornata di escursioni alle 5 Terre ed una visita alla città della Spezia.

Visit to the laboratory + personalization of your hat. I will tell you all about my job and I will offer you an overview about its secrets. I will tell you how to shape a hat by hand, and show you the materials which it is made of, the tools and the wooden shapes. You can see and touch ancient tools and learn more about this rare craft. We will talk about the different models, about hats for men and for women and about hat etiquette. After this introduction you can start to customize your hat. You will have a unisex hat with brim, felt or parasisol, previously modeled by me and you will choose and apply the finishing band of the dome. You will live a beautiful experience, coming back home with new skills and a hat made entirely of high quality materials. The duration will be about 2 hours.
