Museo del Merletto

Irish-point lace-making was introduced on the island in the early 1900s by Marchioness Elena Guglielmi, and the local women became so adept at making beautiful pieces that even the likes of the Tsarina of Russia and Queen Margaret wore their fine pieces. In the 1960s the quality of the lace being made was such and the requests so many that several island women decided to turn it into an industry. The Museum on the island displays many of the most beautiful pieces made by these talented ladies, many of whom can still be seen working together in the sun in front of their homes.
