Forlì | From the 18th of March 2023 through to the 2nd of July, the San Domenico Museums in Forlì will host the exhibition ‘The Art of Fashion, The Age of Dreams and Revolutions 1789-1968’ conceived and produced by Fondazione Cassa dei Risparmi of Forlì. Directed by Gianfranco Brunelli and curated by Cristina Acidini, Enrico Colle, Fabiana Giacomotti and Fernando Mazzocca, the exhibition is dedicated to the fascinating relationship between art and fashion over three centuries: from the Ancien Régime to the second half of the 20th century.

The exhibition includes more than 300 artworks, including paintings, sculptures, accessories, period and contemporary clothing. It illustrates how art and fashion have mirrored each other over the centuries, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the historical, social and cultural aspects of the different eras.

The Forlì exhibition brings to Italy masterpieces from major Italian and international museum institutions including the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Belvedere Gallery in Vienna, the Uffizi Galleries in Florence, the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rome, and the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan. Also prestigious fashion houses such as Giorgio Armani, Curiel, Christian Dior Couture, Gucci Historical Archives, Maison Valentino, and Lanvin have loaned unique clothes and accessories.

Bonaveri was asked to create 120 bespoke Sartorial bust forms including a number of historical forms from the Bonaveri Sartorial Collections, which perfectly enhance the garments selected for the exhibition.

The installation design by Studio Lucchi & Biserni.
