This is a visual tour of the Museo dell’Arte del Cappello di Ghiffa which I visited March 14th 2017. I took over 300 photos so not sure when this will end. I would like thank my friend Daniele for making the long drive to Ghiffa from Verona. Also would like to thank Ms. Elena Poletti (Museum Curator) who graciously opened the museum for our visit (the museum is closed during the winter months) and answered our questions. The weather was perfect and Lake Maggiore was beyond magnificent (deserves its on thread). The workers at Panizza definitely had an amazing visual back drop.
