Where
Via Alessandro Volta 6, Busto Arsizio (VA)

The Museum of Textiles and Industrial Traditions was opened with the aim of collecting, preserving and displaying objects, machinery, products and documents from the local textile industry and other local industries in Busto Arsizio. The museum also promotes cultural activities and raises awareness to help scientific and historical research into the industries. It recounts the history of how textiles were made in the area, explaining the techniques and the effect textiles had on related industries and society and the mark this textile expertise left on the city. The museum is housed in a building that was once the spinning mill for one of the largest manufacturers in the area; the Carlo Ottolini Cotton Mill, which later became the Bustese Cotton Mill and is an important example of the city’s industrial history.
