Ritorno alle Origine – Roberto Capucci

Roberto CapucciRoberto Capucci
We went to the “Ritorno alle Origine – Omaggio a Firenze” exhibit at the Villa Bardini. (The villa is about 3 minutes up the street from where we live.) The title of the show is “The Return to the Origin – Homage to Florence”. The exhibit is about the fashion of Roberto Capucci. There are sketches and dresses on display. The dresses are really dress sculptures (“abito scultura”) – never really meant to be worn. Did you know that the first Italian, high fashion show was held in 1951? Capucci was one of those who participated, though it seems he upstaged some of the other designers.
