Arts is not what you see, but what you make others see!
In conjunction with ninety years of Salvatore Ferragamo’s return to Italy in 1927 after spending twelve years in the United States, Museo Salvatore Ferragamo organised an exhibition to celebrate their anniversary.
For this occassion, Carlo Sisi, exhibition curator – working with a scientific committee – created an exhibition inspired by Ferragamo’s transatlantic voyage when he returned to Italy.
The exhibition portrays a view of Italy in the 1920s on which a decade now is seen as a hotbed of creative ideas and artistic experimentation, where those with open minds and no preconceptions were free to flourish.
It features eight rooms and many works of art by Maccari, Martini, Thayaht, Gio Ponti, Rosai, Balla, Depero and others. Additionally, clothing and fabric from that era, finely crafted objects d’art, photographs and advertisements will be featured as well.
What’s more exciting? It will include shoes created by Salvatore Ferragamo in the 1920s, demonstrating his contemporaries in the art world. The shoe collection is an exclusive Capsule Collection that is made up of six shoe models created in the early thirties in Hollywood.
