      Alb: the linen shirt, embroidered by hand, refers to a dress in use at the beginning of the 19th century for the Casaccia di San Giacomo delle Fucine. It took 2 years to embroider it. Presence in the visible parts embroidered leaves while at the bottom the cross of Santiago. Hood and gloves feature the same leaf embroidery as the gown.

      The dress is completed by the belt, made up of a 19th century trimming from an ancient tabarrino, while on the "buckle" there is still the embroidery of the cross of Santiago surrounded by leaves. The track is in silk from the mid-1700s.

      Tabarrino: from the Genoese school, it was dated to the last quarter of the 18th century, originally it was used by a brotherhood named after the SS. Trinity. The fabric is in velvet and features flower embroidery in silver thread on the entire surface; the sunburst on the left surrounds the prior's imprint.
