  • Is not just a Museum, il laboratorio di Chiara Vigo is a world unto itself where the contact with the artist takes you to appreciate a artei, that only his dedication led us to know. That old "Bisso", a natural silk obtained from filaments that secretes a bivalve mollusk (Pinna nobilis). You can enjoy while weaves this fiber and create unique works.

  • More than a Museum is a meeting with a millenary tradition not easy to grasp: the manufacture of fine linen. I came with a group of Germans who listened in awe, for me it was more difficult to enter the magical aura many reviewers laud. Clare Vigo exudes simplicity, serenity, knowledge and love for the fine. I enriched but haven't been picked for this fine ... I would have loved to buy something fine (although I know it is not and will not be possible) to touch it, smelling it, rimiralo and take it home in my wall of travel memories. However if you go Sant'Antioco go there but first read, read.
