  • COURTYARD
    The building’s inner courtyard is not part of Salone dei Tessuti and therefore is not licensed for events, unless by specific arrangements.
  • MAIN ENTRANCE AND ACCESS TO OFFICES

  • PARQUET FLOOR
    Salone dei Tessuti still boasts its original nailed oakwood floor dating back to the 1920s, with structural load limits for heavy items.

  • In addition to Salone dei Tessuti, Galtrucco’s property portfolio includes many of the shops that in the past contributed to the commercial activity’s recognition, such as those in Milan, Rome, Turin, Novara and Trieste.
  • Galtrucco acquired the space in the 1920s and then rebuilt it into today’s Salone dei Tessuti for the development of its commercial business in Milan. Salone dei Tessuti became the main showroom for Galtrucco’s fabrics during the following decades.
