Mansi Palace is located in the city center of Lucca and dates to the late sixteenth century. It was acquired in 1616 by the merchant Mansi family, who rebuilt the house in the Baroque style in contrast to the austerity of the exterior features. The museum has been located here since 1965 when it became State property and had been completely renovated. The original 17th-18th century furnishings, frescoes and tapestries were recovered and restored. Thanks to the Mansi family specialization, you can take part in the ancient sewing workshop creating the rustic Luccan textiles. Every Tuesday (3pm – 6pm) and Thursday (10am – 1pm).
