Filistrucchi is the oldest workshop in Florence and it’s always been managed by the same family. It was founded in 1720 when the wig fashion arrived in Italy having been in vogue for some time at the French court. Next to come were hairstyling and theatrical make-up. Wigs, beards, moustaches and toupees are all made here, in addition to latex and papier-mache prostheses and masks. All items are made to measure using natural hair and recreating a perfect copy of the original.
