The Gucci Museum in Florence tells the story of the Italian fashion and leather goods manufacturer, from its early start in the city of Florence to the global biggest-selling Italian brand that it is today.

Gucci was founded in 1921 in Florence by Guccio Gucci, who had worked in Paris and London hotels and had been impressed by the luxurious luggage of the guests. When he returned to Florence Gucci and three of his sons started their own workshop, which soon led to the first Gucci shops being opened in Milan and Rome. The start of a global fashion and accessories empire.

The museum is housed in a 14th century building at the Piazza della Signoria, in the heart of Florence. Its permanent collection consists of Gucci pieces from all eras and of all kinds, from bags, purses, dresses and scarfs, to jewellery, precious objects and even sports equipment.

In addition to the permanent collection, the museum has a space dedicated to contemporary art exhibitions by renowned international artists.
