Pierti: the Atelier in Torre di Palme, Le Marche | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

A wonderful medieval hamlet located on a hill overlooking the sea, where the air smells of art, history and tradition: this is the magic of Torre di Palme.
The beauty, the artistic ad creative preciousness of textile tradition passed on generation after generation, thanks to the efforts of people like Suor Santina Maria Stragapede who in the 30′s taught the noble art of embroidery to the young ladies of her labour school. In the courtyard of the stronghold, just by closing your eyes you can still feel the joyful echo of the young women with a needle in their hands under the watching eye of the nuns, unaware of their future being a treasure made of talent and dedication.
