The works on display, characterized by vitamin colours, crisp and fluid volumes, paid homage to Sicilian culture and its baroque and neo-baroque roots, blending sacredness and artistic beauty.

Enriquez declared: "Sicily is my land and even living in Milan I always carry it in my heart. When Rosy and Gianni Cassarino of the Boutique Rainbow asked me to strengthen the brand after the positive outcome of the customer purchases with a dedicated pop-up I immediately accepted. I like to dedicate myself to commercial entities that talk about the collection with enthusiasm and when it comes to my homeland I always try to be there."

The "A.M.O.R.E." exhibition by Alessandro Enriquez, the fulcrum of the Baroque and Neo-Baroque Festival of Ragusa, offered a unique sensory experience. Celebrating love through fashion, art and design, Enriquez was able to pay homage to the beauty and vitality of Sicily, combining tradition and modernity in a creative dialogue that enchanted the visitors.

The exhibition was not just limited to clothes. Various artistic collaborations enriched the experience, such as the Fashion Hats by Patrizia Fabri Hats, spectacular straw hats that completed the looks on display. The bags of the Sicilian brand Danié added a touch of local craftsmanship, while the collaboration with the company Jannelli&Volpi brought a collection of colorful wallpapers, telling the vision of the designer's love.
