A little museum upstairs in the offices of Salvatore Ferragamo. Very interesting - covers the career of Ferragamo and displays many of the shoe forms used to handcraft shoes for the rich and famous. Really fun.

I went to the museum expecting to see a mass of vintage Ferragamo shoes and clothing/accessories. Unfortunately, there is only about 1 and a half walls of shoes. I did not see any clothing. It is a joke to call it a museum. It is more of a "display". The rest of the many rooms focused on a temporary exhibit... More

This "museum" does absolutely no justice to the Ferragamo name or history. There is one, count it, ONE wall of shoes on exhibit, for a total of about 60 shoes. There are NO men's shoes in the exhibit. The rest of the museum is taken up by a very strange exhibit called "Equilibrium", which has nothing to do with shoes... More

I doubted that my decidedly non-fashionista spouse had even heard of Salvatore Ferragamo -- then stunned when he declared this museum his favorite spot in Florence! It's an appealing, well-designed space in the basement of the beautiful Ferragamo palace, with an unexpected aspect: it doesn't really focus on Ferragamo or his shoes (though you'll see an interesting assortment of them)....

I couldn't agree more whole-heartedly with another recent review. The store with the limited edition shoes worn by 40's, 50's & 60's celebrities was a much better treat than the museum below street level. I too explored that tiny closet where they keep all of those shoe models, and it was a real treat for an admirer of the era... More

SHOPPING AT THE STORE! I was able to enjoy the small closet inside the store that houses all of the fabulous designs made famous by women like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe! Because the store was empty (off-season!) I was able to speak with the associate about each and every incredible pair in the closet...and she loved every minute of... More

Having worn Ferragamos since I discovered them in Florence in 1982, I was a little bit excited to view the museum. I think the cost was 6€ per person. It was not easy for us to determine how to follow the chronology using the earphones. In addition to this, there was an exhibit of some sort, which we considered unusual... More

While the Ferragamo shoes, ties and clothes are second to none, the museum is unfortunately not well done. May be we just did not get the concept. The Gucci Museo is classes better - really stylish.

When it started raining, we ducked into this little muswum which is downstairs under the store in Campo Santa Trinita. Very impressed. Apparently they change themes every few months and tie them to shoes (mostly, but not totally Ferragamo). This time, it was shoes in literature and fairy tales. Fanciful, interesting and entrancing. There was a wonderful short film based... More
