Museo Salvatore Ferragamo
Palazzo Spini Feroni, Florence
Until 10 March 2019
The years from 1915 to 1927 spent by Salvatore Ferragamo in the United States, mostly at Santa Barbara in California, are the source of inspiration for a new exhibition at Museo Salvatore Ferragamo that analyzes the presence of Italians in that region and their influence on a range of different sectors, from art to crafts to cinema.
Taking its cue from the memoirs of Salvatore Ferragamo, the show focuses on the world of art, crafts and entertainment, areas of great interest for Ferragamo, in a theatrical setting designed by Maurizio Balò, based on the Hollywood studios of the 1920s.
The final room focuses on Salvatore Ferragamo, with a faithful replica of the store the great Italian craftsman opened in Hollywood in 1923.
