The Great Italian Fashion
Creativity, ingenuity and inventione; the excellence of Italian art, since the time of Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo, is renewed with the protagonists of a new and celebrated poetic of art. Italian designers and their Fashion Houses, which are workshops of new sensibilities, offer a vision of present and future by the reading of the past and the creation of new artistic languages. Their internationally celebrated Art renovates the experience of the Ancient Masters as the inimitable voice of the most inspired and winning Italian style.
