The Foundation has ancient roots but enthusiastically lives in the present as it looks to the future.

The testimonial of a centuries-old tradition, Fondazione Andriana Marcello is active in many different areas.

Master Lacemakers are often present in the Museum for demonstrations. They also organize individual and group courses to pass on this art to new generations.

Through a dense network of contacts, competitions, events, and meetings, Fondazione Andriana Marcello has established a dialog with other similar groups in Italy and has often received important awards and recognition.

Its lacework has been and still is a source of inspiration for various artists who, with various techniques and methods, have inserted or referenced them in their works.

Fondazione Andriana Marcello participates in the initiatives for the nomination of lace as a UNESCO intangible heritage of humanity.
