Fashion and olfactive design featured in “Beyond black, fashion as experience”, collateral event of the Altaroma latest edition I ideated and curated which coincided with “Black celebration”, the other official event I made in collaboration with Altaroma and was held in Rome, at the same street, via di Montoro, smashing area hosting factories of artisans. Three were the different locations that hosted a smashing showcase of creativity made in Italy: the factory Menexa, the bride atelier La Maison Blanche and the factory of lutist Michel Eggimann where was presented the creations by OFFICINE904, Myriam B. and Anna Porcu, combined to olfactive installations smelling of artistic perfumery scents created by Meo Fusciuni, romantic and genius aromatorius, apothecary, researcher of olfactive memory embodying liquid emotions in a bottle, that tells about his journeys, uniqueness of experiences and universality of feelings. The travelling universe of scents by Meo, his two fragrances composing the Trilogia di viaggio, “1#nota di viaggio (Rites de passage)” and “2#nota di viaggio (Shukran…)” dialogued with the minimalism and craftsmanship by OFFICINE 904, eclectic factory and brand of accessories and jewelry created by Paolo Porcu Rodriguez and Silvia Pavanello – promoting and successfully making concrete a free dialogue between art, fashion, design e architecture, giving rise to ideas on the move, signs, symbols, surfaces and shapes becoming projects and products, stories and experiences drawing the Italian lifestyle and taste – that were hosted by the factory Menexa. The approach of matter by Myriam B., inspired by the nature, flowers and corals that are reworked by non-specific paillettes, feathers and gems where it shines a bright craftsmanship, was combined to the third scent talking about the scent of love and composes the trilogy of journey by Meo Fusciuni, “3# nota di viaggio (Ciavuru d’amuri)”, suave dialogue enhanced by the light atmospheres of the bride La Maison Blanche. The poetry by Anna Porcu where fascinations from the past, made concrete by a jewel, the cameo, become contemporary and blend in the leather and silver, joined to music or rather to the creations by the lutist Michel Eggiman and scents by Meo Fusciuni or the two fragrances composing il Ciclo della poesia (The cycle of poetry). Lights and shadows, nostalgia and love, the features of two scents, “Notturno” and “Luce” that were part of a delicate olfactive installation. A myriad of signs, craftsmanship, art, uniqueness and experimentation that catch fashion as total experience and lifestyle. An enchanting afternoon interlude which was sweetened by the experience of taste by a renowned Sicilian wine house, Tasca d’ Almerita along with the creations by Bocca di Dama.

 

ALTAROMA: “BEYOND BLACK, FASHION AS EXPERIENCE”, UN’ ESPERIENZA POMERIDIANA DI MODA & DESIGN OLFATTIVO

Moda e design olfattivo sono stati i protagonisti di “Beyond black, fashion as experience”, evento collaterale dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma da me ideato e curato in concomitanza di “Black celebration”, l’ altro evento da me realizzato in collaborazione con Altaroma e si è tenuto a Roma, nella stessa strada, a via di Montoro, formidabile area che ospita i laboratori di artigiani. Tre erano le diverse locations che esponevano una formidabile rassegna di creatività made in Italy: la factory Menexa, l’ atelier di abiti da sposa La Maison Blanche e la factory del liutaio Michel Eggimann in cui sono state presentate le creazioni di OFFICINE904, Myriam B. and Anna Porcu, abbinate a installazioni olfattive di fragranze di profumeria artistica create da Meo Fusciuni, romantico e geniale aromatario, uno speziale, ricercatore della memoria olfattiva che racchiude emozioni liquide in bottiglia, le quali narrano i suoi viaggi, unicità di esperienze e universalità di sentimenti. L’ itinerante universo di odori di Meo, le sue due fragranze che compongono la Trilogia di viaggio, “1#nota di viaggio (Rites de passage)” e “2#nota di viaggio (Shukran…)”, ha dialogato con il minimalismo e l’ artigianalità di OFFICINE 904, eclettica factory e brand toscano di accessori e gioielli creato da Paolo Porcu Rodriguez e Silvia Pavanello – il quale promuove e concretizza felicemente un libero dialogo tra arte, moda, design e architettura, dando vita a idee in movimento, segni simboli, superfici e forme che diventano progetti e prodotti, storia ed esperienze che disegnano il lifestyle e gusto italiano – che era presso ospitato la factory Menexa. L’ approccio materico di Myriam B., che trae ispirazione dalla natura, da fiori e coralli che vengono rielaborati mediante aspecifiche paillettes, piume e pietre dure in cui splende una brillante artigianalità, è stato abbinato alla terza fragranza che parla dell’ odore dell’ amore e compone la trilogia di viaggio di Meo Fusciuni,  “3# nota di viaggio (Ciavuru d’amuri)”, soave dialogo valorizzato dalle leggiadre atmosfere dell’ atelier di abiti da sposa La Maison Blanche di Davide Raciti. La poesia di Anna Porcu in cui fascinazioni del passato, concretizzate da un gioiello, il cammeo, diventano contemporanee e si fondono con la pelle e l’ argento, si è unita alla musica o meglio alle creazioni del liutaio Michel Eggiman ed agli effluvi di Meo Fusciuni ovvero le due fragranze che compongono il Ciclo della poesia. Luci e ombre, nostalgia e amore, i protagonisti di due profumi, “Notturno” e “Luce” che hanno fatto parte di una delicata installazione olfattiva. Una miriade di segni, artigianalità, arte, unicità e sperimentazione che immortala la moda come esperienza totale e stile di vita. Un’ incantevole interludio pomeridiano che è stato addolcito dall’ esperienza del gusto di una rinomata casa vinicola siciliana, Tasca d’ Almerita unitamente alle creazioni di Bocca di Dama.

Black celebration, photo by Nunzia Garoffolo

Dear FBFers, here I am again after a long time to talk about the Altaroma latest edition and “Black celebration”, exhibition event I ideated and curated in collaboration with Altaroma which was held in Rome at the Montoro 12 art gallery. The event bringing the same name of the track and legendary album by Depeche Mode – one of most relevant chapters of new-wave music – celebrated a color, its incisiveness, deepness and refinement through a smashing showcase of fashion, art, design and music. High fashion and demi-couture made in Italy, dresses and accessories made by renowned couturiers and vibrant creatives as Renato Balestra, Sarli, Galitzine by Sergio Zambon, Liborio Capizzi, Sylvio Giardina, Angelos Bratis, Maurizio Pecoraro, Lucia Odescalchi, Mario Salvucci, Anna Porcu,  Olga Pong, Arnoldo Battois, Myriam B. and Frank Lo dialogued with the art by the brilliant photographer Marco Bertolini, the artistic installation “Skull” by Sylvio Giardina – a dynamic black book embodied in a black, lighting Plexiglas box depicting the movement of a ray of light evoking the brightness of a color which is often connected to darkness, forgetting the lessons by Caravaggio who successfully impressed in his works the light of black -, the olfactive design by Antonio Gardoni, bright architect and creator of artistic perfumery brand Bogue profumo, who presented the Bogue Mask, a scent diffuser for interiors along with Cologne and the new scent MAAI – scents that are 100% naturals and free from chemical fixers -, and the enchanting site-specific installation created by a marvelous creative, the milliner Olga Pong. The atmosphere which talked about the persuasiveness of black has emphasized by the music by Andy Fluon, founder of Bluvertigo band and artistic collective and band Fluon who reinterpreted exclusively for the happening the famous track by Depeche Mode. A successful afternoon interlude which has enriched by Epicurean suggestions: the creations by the food designer Francesca Silveri from the Foligno San Feliciano Bakery and Bocca di Dama, salted and sweet cookies made in black and the culture of taste embodied in the delicious wines by Tasca D’ Almerita.

Cari FBFers, rieccomi dopo lungo tempo per parlare dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma e di “Black celebration”, evento espositivo da me ideato e curato in collaborazione con Altaroma che si è tenuto a Roma presso la galleria d’ arte Montoro 12. L’ evento, che porta il nome del brano e leggendario album dei Depeche Mode – uno dei capitolo più significativi della musica new-wave -, ha celebrato un colore, il nero, la sua incisività, profondità e raffinatezza attraverso una formidabile rassegna di moda, arte, design e musica. Alta moda e demi-couture made in Italy, abiti e accessory realizzati da rinomati couturiers e vibranti creativi quali Renato Balestra, Sarli, Galitzine by Sergio Zambon, Liborio Capizzi, Sylvio Giardina, Angelos Bratis, Maurizio Pecoraro, Lucia Odescalchi, Mario Salvucci, Anna PorcuOlga Pong, Arnoldo Battois, Myriam B. e Frank Lo hanno dialogato con l’ arte del brillante fotografo Marco Bertolini, l’ installazione artistica “Skull” di Sylvio Giardina – un libro nero dinamico racchiuso in una luminosa scatola nera di plexiglass che ritrae il movimento di un raggio di luce, il quale evoca la lucentezza di un colore sovente associato all’ oscurità, dimenticandosi la lezione di Caravaggio che ha impresso nelle sue opere la luce del nero -, il design olfattivo di Antonio Gardoni, brillante architetto e creatore del brand di profumeria artistica Bogue profumo, che ha presentato la Bogue Mask, un diffusore di profumo per ambienti unitamente a Cologne e al nuovo profumo MAAI – fragranze che sono naturali al 100 % e prive di fissatori chimici – e l’ incantevole installazione creata da una fantastica creativa, la designer di cappelli Olga Pong. L’ atmosfera che parlava della persuasività del nero è stata enfatizzata dalla musica di Andy Fluon, fondatore della band Bluvertigo e del collettivo artistico e band Fluon che ha reinterpretato esclusivamente per l’ evento il famoso brano dei Depeche Mode. Un felice interludio pomeridiano che è stato arricchito da suggestioni epicuree: le creazioni della food designer Francesca Silveri del Forno San Feliciano di Foligno e Bocca di Dama, biscotti salati e dolci s made in black e dalla cultura del gusto racchiusa in nei deliziosi vini di Tasca D’ Almerita.

Galitzine Spring/Summer 2014

Galitzine Spring/Summer 2014

Sergio Zambon, creative director of legendary fashion house Galitzine, depicted an urban princess and reinterprets in a modern and innovative way the traditional patterns of work by Irene Galitzine in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection he made. The iconic pyjama suit is one of the main features of collection along with catchy dresses, short skirts and jackets resulting from a detailed work of construction and experimentation. The Sangallo cotton gets a paper effect , silk has decorated by fun and delicate appliqués. Other sophisticated details joins to a urban femininity, dressed up with irony. That refined irony which is part of the creative, its work and it is impressed in the print of the slogan, “princess”, decorating dresses, shirts, accessories and talks about a refined, self-confident and free woman who lives in contemporary times and winks at the same time to the Sixties suggestions. Black, white, light colors, orange and a smashing print depicting a heritage of brand, the make­up collection, created yesterday by the Georgian princess, enriches the collection including also little, big masterpieces of craftsmanship, the enchanting metal bags.

ELEGANZA & MODERNITÀ:LA PRINCIPESSA URBAN DI GALITZINE

Galitzine Spring/Summer 2014

Galitzine Spring/Summer 2014

Sergio Zambon, direttore creativo della leggendaria casa di moda Galitzine, dipinge una principessa urban e reintepreta in modo moderno e innovativo tradizionali motivi dell’ opera di Irene Galitzine nella collezione primavera/estate da lui realizzata. L’ iconico pigiama palazzo è uno dei principali protagonisti della collezione insieme ad accattivanti abiti, gonne corte e giacche che sono il risultato di una minuzioso lavoro di costruzione e sperimentazione. Il cotone Sangallo acquisisce un effetto carta, la seta è decorata da divertenti e delicate appliqués. Altri sofisticati dettagli si uniscono a una femminilità urban, condita da ironia. Quella fine ironia che è parte del creativo, del suo lavoro ed è impressa nello slogan “princess” che decora abiti, maglie, accessori e parla di una donna libera e sicura di sé che vive nella contemporaneità e al tempo stesso strizza l’ occhio al passato, alle suggestioni degli anni Sessanta. Nero, bianco, colori tenui, arancio e una formidabile stampa che rappresenta un heritage del brand, la linea di make­up, creata ieri dalla principessa georgiana, arricchisce la collezione che include anche piccoli, grandi capolavori di artigianalità, le borse di metallo.

The empowered femininity has shined and celebrated by the genius Jean Paul Gaultier in the Fall/Winter 2013-2014 haute couture collection he made, presented in Rome during the latest edition of Altaroma, which featured the patterns and sophisticated constructions being a leitmotiv of his work: corsets, stripes, transparencies, fringes evoking art deco suggestions, lace, sequins and fur (who was proud of using, as he asserted during the press conference I attended at the Hotel Flora Baglioni).

The man has appeared in this fashion show, a charming contemporary glampire has “turned into an object”, as the couturier said, emphasizing the force and theatricality of the woman he depicted. A enchanting event as well as a successful chance to meet and enjoy a legendary creative, who was extremely generous and modest during the press conference, also answering to the controversial questions of some Italian journalists (concerning the models and celebrities who would featured in the fashion show and other ones belonging to the same standard).

Instead me, I has been religiously silent, preferring hearing him, who generously spoke Italian and celebrated Rome, its suggestions, the Italian culture which has very relevant in its training as creative and individual (later, at the end of press conference I talked with him about Italian film, who has been very inspiring for him, about Federico Fellini and Luchino Visconti) and hearing  the President of Altaroma Silvia Venturini Fendi who made concrete a laudable work developing contemporary fashion, its culture under the sign of art and internationality.

 

ALTAROMA: LE MERAVIGLIOSE SINUOSITÀ DI JEAN PAUL GAULTIER

L’ emancipata femminilità ha brillato ed è stata celebrata dal geniale Jean Paul Gaultier nella collezione alta moda autunno/inverno 2013-2014 da lui realizzata, presentata a Roma in occasione dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma di cui sono stati protagonisti i motivi e le sofisticate costruzioni che sono un leitmotiv della sua opera: bustier, righe, trasparenze, frange che evocano suggestioni art decò, pizzo, paillettes, trasparenze e pelliccia ( che è stato fiero di usare, amando la pelliccia, come costui ha affermato durante la conferenza stampa a cui ho partecipato presso l’ Hotel Flora Baglioni).

L’ uomo è apparso in questa sfilata, un affascinante vampiro glam contemporaneo, trasformato in oggetto, come couturier ha detto, enfatizzando la forza e teatralità della donna da lui ritratta. Un incantevole evento che è stato anche una felice occasione per conoscere vis à vis e apprezzare un leggendario creativo che è stato estremamente generoso e modesto durante la conferenza stampa, rispondendo anche alle discutibili domande di alcune giornaliste italiane( inerenti le modelle e celebrities che avrebbero partecipato alla sfilata unitamente ad altre della medesima levatura).

Invece religiosamente silente, ho preferito ascoltarlo, il quale ha generosamente parlato in italiano e celebrato Roma, le sue suggestioni, la cultura italiana che ha avuto un ruolo molto significativo nella sua formazione creativa e individuale (successivamente, alla fine della conferenza stampa ho parlato con lui del cinema italiano, che lo ha ispirato molto, di registi quali Federico Fellini e Luchino Visconti) e ascoltando il Presidente di Altaroma Silvia Venturini Fendi la quale ha concretizzato una felice opera che consolida la moda contemporanea, la sua cultura all’ insegna dell’ arte e l’ internazionalità.

Altaroma featured a successful combination of art, fashion and culture under the sign of emerging creatives and contemporary times. It has started with the fashion show of Suzanne Susceptible, winner of Yoox award during the latest edition of WION talent-scouting award, inspired by Chagall, joining a catchy research of textiles and a nice play of volumes.

The fashion show ended with the suggestive track “Love will tear us apart” by Joy Division I love very much.

Later I enjoyed an Epicurean interlude at the enchanting Hotel Locarno’s bar along with the bright fashion designer Angelos Bratis, the eclectic journalist, author, curator and professor Cesare Cunaccia and the Turin native actress Elena Radonicich who is the testimonial of the bright fashion designer during tomorrow’s exhibition Limited/Unlimited which will be held at Hadrian’s Temple.

Andrea Splisgar and me

Andrea Splisgar and me

I always loved – since I was a child – to connect my friends between themselves and I was doubly glad of creating the circumstances to connecting friends who were long-time friends and they didn’t see ourselves since a long time. That has recently happened in Rome, where my dearest friend, the brilliant multimedia artist Andrea Splisgar (based in Berlin, who gave me as gift a copy on CD of her awesome multimedia work she made as Der Mondaene Tiger, “The Swan killer”, a story, accompanied by music under the sign of Wagnerian suggestions which tells about a man who kills a swan just to hear that particular sound the swan makes before dying) reached me and where she and our common friend Sergio Zambon saw ourselves after 20 years. It has been a suggestive evening we shared after the closing of Altaroma’s latest edition, a delicious dinner at the restaurant “Caronte”; placed in via Machiavelli. Here I featured in a hilarious moment or rather – as Andrea asserted – a film scene. I was talking with Sergio about the natural connections there are between people, then I had a narcolepsy moment, my eyes closed, I was very tired(because I didn’t sleep the day before), thus I immediately drank a coffee and immediately after, honoring my endorphins, I woke up and started talking with Sergio – who was joyfully thrilled – as nothing happened. Beyond this funny scene it has been a successful chance to talk about in terms of energy, lightness and free thinking which goes beyond cultural heritage connected to territory, something featuring in my life, ideas, actions, words and works along with the idea of sharing, made concrete at best during this marvelous evening.

UNA CERCHIA DI AMICI ALL’ INSEGNA DI LIBERO PENSIERO ED EPICUREISMO

Ho sempre amato – sin da quando ero bambina – unire i miei amici tra loro e sono stata doppiamente felice di creare le circostanze per unire amici che erano tali e non si vedevano da lungo tempo. Ciò è recentemente accaduto a Roma, luogo in cui la mia carissima amica, la brillante artista multimediale Andrea Splisgar (residente a Berlino che mi ha donato una copia del suo splendido lavoro multimediale, da lei realizzato nelle vesti di Der Mondaene Tiger, “The Swan killer”, una storia accompagnata da musica all’ insegna di suggestioni wagneriane che narra di un uomo che uccide un cigno soltanto per ascoltare quella particolare melodia che il cigno emette prima di morire) mi ha raggiunta e in cui costei ed il nostro comune amico Sergio Zambon si sono incontrati 20 anni dopo. È stata una suggestiva serata che abbiamo condiviso dopo la chiusura dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma, una deliziosa cena al ristorante “Caronte”sito in via Machiavelli. Ivi sono stata protagonista di un ilare momento o meglio – come ha affermato Andrea – di una scena da film. Stavo parlando con Sergio delle connessioni spontanee che esistono tra le persone, subito dopo ho avuto un momento di narcolessia, i miei occhi si sono improvvisamente chiusi, ero molto stanca(non avendo dormito il giorno prima), pertanto ho immediatamente bevuto un caffè e subito dopo, onorando le mie endorfine, ho aperto gli occhi e cominciato a parlare con Sergio – gioiosamente stupito – come se niente fosse accaduto. Al di là di questa buffa scena, la circostanza è stata una felice occasione per parlare in termini di energia, leggerezza e libero pensiero che và oltre le radici culturali connesse al territorio, qualcosa che è protagonista della mia vita, delle mie idee, azioni, parole e opere unitamente all’ idea della condivisione, concretizzata al meglio in questa meravigliosa serata.

Storia della moda a Roma”(Donzelli Editions, Euros 30, 00), book by the fashion historian Cinzia Capalbo, which explores Italian fashion and its history, focusing on the Italian capital as cornerstone of haute couture, a suggestive path depicted by the author which starts in late nineteenth century was released recently.

Like the work of Silvia Venturini Fendi (fashion designer of brand Fendi) as President of Altaroma: art, fashion and craftsmanship are together with emerging talents in order to showcase, celebrate and support the made in Italy and made in Rome(a purpose which has made concrete and evidenced by the facts: the sharing of talents showcased and supported by Altaroma which recently featured in relevant Italian trade show events as the Milan White and Florence Pitti, successful evidence of the laudable talent-scouting work made and promoted by Altaroma).

Renato Balestra Fall/Winter 2011-2012

Renato Balestra Fall/Winter 2011-2012

Thus I am very pleased of getting her words, embodied in the preface of book by Cinzia Capalbo. on loan: “Rome is my city, the city where I was born and raised, where I started considering the craftsmanship as a great heritage and where, once I had the chance, I started to support it as value of Italian culture. Rome is a city full of history and traditions which is considered all around the world as the cradle of those trades that join with themselves, giving rise to the concept of fashion.

Brioni 1964

This book very clearly explains how a series of social, political and economic conditions contributed to the rise of a forerunner melting-pot, laying the basis for the contemporary made in Italy. Rome has always played the part of fascinating all of the human perceptions and because of that it has attracted many masters artisans who came here from every land of country, contributing to create a centre of excellence.

Rome has been a destination for celebrated authors for the Grand Tour they made in the nineteenth century, a cornerstone of film in the golden years of last century: a huge source to draw on. A city made of places to enjoy, cues to learn, paths to discover and trades that have fitted together and inspired the future. “A time machine”, as Cinzia Capalbo defines the book she wrote, which upsets and gives a detailed account of Rome as ideal seat of high-end craftsmanship.

An idea which is naturally connected to Altaroma, which represents the means to re-discover and protect those ancient professions, those manual skills that are always more rare. How many masters artisans don’t know anyone to pass on him their art?. I really think all that is a challenge and an opportunity. The creativity is an unlimited heritage which, joint to the recovery of this wide range of professions, can give infinite chances to work.

Silvia Venturini Fendi and me during the press conference for the launch of Galitzine capsule collection by Sergio Zambon

I think about a pied microcosm of arts and trades that is doomed to create dynamism in an industry which requests new incentives and energies. Holding and passing on the know-how of tradition and implementing the crossover with experimentation, il made in Italy really will find again its leading role in the realm of international fashion. A lively and dynamic campus for contributing to recognize the depth and relevance of made in Italy and “made in Rome”, so as fashion and all goes around this field becomes discipline of contemporary times, recognized as genuine art”.

Storia della moda a Roma”(Donzelli Editore, Euro 30, 00), libro della storica della moda Cinzia Capalbo, che esplora la moda italiana e la sua moda, soffermandosi sulla capitale italiana quale fulcro dell’ alta moda, un percorso suggestivo dipinto dall’ autrice che inizia alla fine del diciannovesimo secolo, è stato recentemente pubblicato.

Come l’ opera di Silvia Venturini Fendi (fashion designer del brand Fendi) nelle vesti di Presidente di Altaroma: arte, moda e artigianato sono insieme ai talenti emergenti al fine di esporre, celebrare e sostenere il made in Italy e il made in Rome(una finalità che è stata concretizzata e dimostrata dai fatti: la condivisione dei talenti esposti e sostenuti da Altaroma che è stata recentemente protagonista di importanti eventi fieristici di moda quali il White di Milano e il Pitti di Firenze, felice dimostrazione del lodevole lavoro di talent-scouting realizzato e promosso da Altaroma).

Pertanto sono molto lieta di prendere a prestito le sue parole, racchiuse nella prefazione del libro di Cinzia Capalbo: “Roma è la mia città, la città dove sono nata e cresciuta, dove ho imparato a considerare l’ artigianato un grande patrimonio e dove, appena ne ho avuto la possibilità, ho cominciato a sostenerlo come valore della cultura italiana. Roma è una città intrisa di storia e di tradizioni che viene percepita nel mondo come culla di tutti quei mestieri che si uniscono, fino a formare il concetto di moda.

Questo libro spiega con grande chiarezza in che modo una serie di condizioni sociali, politiche ed economiche hanno fatto sì che si venisse a creare un “melting-pot” ante litteram, gettando le basi del made in Italy contemporaneo. Roma ha sempre giocato la sua fascinazione su tutte le percezioni umane, ed è anche per questo che qui sono stati attratti molti maestri artigiani da ogni angolo del paese, finendo per creare un polo di eccellenza.

Meta di celebri scrittori per il loro Grand Tour nell’ Ottocento, fulcro del cinema negli anni d’oro del secolo scorso: in breve, un bacino immenso al quale attingere. Una città fatta di luoghi da ammirare, spunti per imparare, percorsi da scoprire e mestieri che hanno finito per intrecciarsi con la storia e ispirare il futuro. “Una macchina del tempo”, come Cinzia Capalbo definisce il suo libro, che capovolge e circostanzia con estrema lucidità l’ idealizzazione di Roma come sede ideale dell’ alto artigianato.

Un concetto che si lega in maniera naturale ad Altaroma, che rappresenta lo strumento per riscoprire e salvaguardare quei mestieri antichi, quelle abilità manuali che sono sempre più rare. Quanti maestri artigiani non sanno a chi tramandare la loro arte? Sono fermamente convinta che questo rappresenti una sfida e un’ opportunità. La creatività è un patrimonio inesauribile, che unito al recupero di questo immenso bacino di mestieri potrà offrire infinite occasioni di lavoro.

Fashion Palace, illustration by Filippo Omegna, 1910

Penso a un variegato microcosmo di arti e mestieri destinati a creare movimento in un’ industria che richiede nuovi stimoli e nuove energie. Conservando e tramandando tutto il know-how della tradizione e implementando il crossover con la sperimentazione, il made in Italy ritroverà certamente il suo ruolo da protagonista nel panorama della moda internazionale. Un campus vivo e dinamico per far riconoscere la vastità e l’ importanza del made in Italy e “made in Rome”. Affinché la moda, e tutto quanto ruota intorno a questo settore diventi disciplina della contemporaneità riconosciuta come vera e propria arte”.
