Gignese. Ombrella Museum



Especially when the weather is inclement, a trip to Gignese, a small town not far from Stresa, is recommended. The museum it houses is truly unique. Focusing on the theme of umbrellas and parasols, it houses over a thousand pieces, many of them curious and strange, or of considerable historical value, belonging to important personalities, such as Margherita di Savoia or Mazzini. A section is also dedicated to umbrella makers, their lives and the rudimentary tools of the past.
