The first area of the show is the Snowdon and Fendi space, which acts as an introduction. It features the images of a photo session featuring the five Fendi sisters taken by the British photographer, which turn into a video animation, combined with a brief history of the brand

For the opening of a new flagship boutique in Milan(designed by Gwenaël Nicolas) Fendi timed another significant event – an exhibition dedicated to the long and passionate relationship of the brand with cinema which is impossible not to be proud of. A two-storey boutique, designed in golden tones and eclectic style has opened its doors on Via Montenapoleone,too.

Trade homage Making Dreams: Fendi and the Cinema opened just one block from the legendary street of boutiques – in the Teatro Manzoni, the world’s first panoramic cinema, the cradle Kinopanorama – unusually complex in the production format that emerged in the fifties of the last century, when the cinema was going through another “Golden Age”.

‘Cinema has always been an important part of our family life and our brand,’ says Silvia Venturini Fendi. ‘I remember as a little girl, film screenings were events in their own right. The cinema would enter our house, we would set up a white screen and the whole event would be met with a religious silence. We have worked alongside the greatest directors of yesterday and today, from Luchino Visconti to Wes Anderson, from Martin Scorsese to Giuseppe Tornatore, and we will continue to do so.’

“This exhibition will allow the visitor to discover the secret history of women within the context of visual art,previously unknown to the public” promises Silvia Fendi-Vinturini. Traditionally, she personally greeted at the opening guests like Catherine Deneuve and Ornella Muti .
The event was attended by several personalities from the world of fashion and film: the model Cara Delevigne, Anna Dello Russo, Delfina Delettrez Fendi, and many others.
