In 2007, with the creation of a special support facility, the Centre for Studies and Research, the Virtual Museum of Textile Arts "Arnaldo Caprai" was created, with the purpose of bringing more value to a type of handicraft, that of lace and embroidery, which boasts an ancient tradition in Umbria. These arts have seen peaks of innovation and since the Eighties have begun to flourish again and have thus contributed to making the name of Umbria great, also at an international level.

There are fourteen “rooms” to visit in the Virtual Museum", divided by historical periods, starting from the 15th century up until the 20th, and contain approximately 22,000 works of art of embroidery and lace. Fans of this genre, and also historians and anyone working in this field, will certainly appreciate a visit to the museum: http://www.museocaprai.it/ita/index.php.

The section devoted to the techniques of workmanship is also very interesting and includes videos and a bibliography for further insight. The section devoted to curiosities is also interesting and covers topics like the trousseau, the introduction of lace and the art of entertaining.
