At the beginning of the twentieth century Adele and Ginna Marcelli, two sisters originally from Sansepolcro, produced a traditional type of bobbin lace, commonly called trina a spilli. It was so successful that this tradition is still kept alive by the ““Il Merletto nella città di Piero” Association through a school of lace and embroidery. In 1994 the Sansepolcro Institute of Art began a study of contemporary fashion, retrieving fabrics from the Piero della Francesca period and inserts of laces made from the original patterns preserved in the Lace Museum’s historical archives.
