Museum

In the heart of the Eternal City, a stone’s throw from Piazza di Spagna, the first and only Barber Museum in Italy and in the World originates.
A journey through time will take you back over the centuries to discover memorabilia, stories, secrets and anecdotes from the ancient world of barbershops.

The Project

The Barber Museum wants to be a point of reference and a meeting place for barbers, beard lovers, art lovers, hipster, curious and simple fans of the world of barbers.

Involving barbers from all parts of the world aiming to discover methods, traditions, tools and stories as bizarre as they are fascinating.

This creates a place for comparison and rediscovery where everyone can interact, discover and make their own little contribution.

The Barber Museum is and wants to be a place of sharing in the future, open to all and without entrance fee.

Philosophy

Behind every great project there is a philosophy, a vision, a goal. That of the Barber Museum, built in the heart of central Rome, is to create a meeting place for lovers of the genre.

A reference point for Italians and foreign tourists, a sacred temple for young barbers eager to discover the origins and traditions of this ancient trade.
With great pleasure we have seen, since the day of the inauguration, that in front of relics and anecdotes some visitors remain stupid, amazed and excited.

We saw grandparents illustrating stories to grandchildren, seniors reliving old memories by watching museum pieces and kids spending whole
afternoons reading the stories hidden behind each piece.
