The exhibition The Alchemy of Color at Palazzo Mocenigo in Venice takes visitors on a journey through the different natural dying techniques of fabrics. While explaining this age-old enterprise, it reveals how human evolution, both cultural and economic, and scientific advancement have always gone hand in hand.

On display are primary materials and products of the dyeing process, the result of a natural method created using roots, stems, bark, leaves, flowers, fruit and even insects to create different shades of colour.
