The Costume Gallery occupies the 18th-century Palazzina della Meridiana, a wing of the Pitti Palace overlooking the Boboli Gardens. The collection comprises six thousand items including costumes dating from the 16th to the 20th centuries, theatre costumes and accessories.
It is the only museum of the history of fashion in Italy and one of the most important in the world. A selection is exhibited in rotation every two/three years.
The Costume Gallery is an unusual and dynamic museum, constantly renewing its installations thanks to the enrichment of its collections through donations from private owners or institutions and State acquisitions.
There are frequent special exhibitions devoted to particular aspects of the collection.
