This costume is based on the Bormio region of Italy.

We had a picture of the ladies costume and wrote to the museum in Bormio to ask for pictures of the mens costume.

They sent detailed colour drawings and from them the ladies in the group made the costume.

Italian Flag Description

Italian Flag Meaning

The Italian flag is based on the design of the French flag. There are different accounts explaining the meaning and history of the green, white and red colours. One account states that the colours of the Italian flag may have been based on military uniforms from Milan. Another one suggests Napoleon Bonaparte replaced the blue of the French flag with green because he liked the colour.
