BellissimaItaly and High Fashion – 1945-1968

 - Bellissima
Investigating the complex and ever-changing story of Italian fashion from 1945 to 1968 through a contemporary lens, this catalogue offers a symphonic account of the many creative components that continue to interact and shape the success and enormous appeal of the “Made in Italy” brand.
This catalogue showcases the amazing garments chosen for the exhibitions at MAXXI and NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, and designed by creators such as Simonetta, Valentino, Roberto Capucci, Irene Galitzine, among many others: the spectacular dresses that illuminated ball rooms and theater galas, as well as cocktail dresses of restrained elegance or tantalizing embellishments inspired by fantasized designs or the leading postwar art movements—the Zero Group, Pop art and Op art.
Published following the eponymous touring exhibition at MAXXI, Rome, from December 2, 2014, to May 3, 2015, and at NSU Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale, from February 7 to June 19, 2016.
Edited by Maria Luisa Frisa, Gabriele Monti, Stefano Tonchi.
