PITTI LIVE MOVIE: the theme of the winter fairs

Cinema is coming to Pitti Uomo. At this edition the fair will be transformed into a Film Festival where the styles of the various venues will be interpreted as different genres: thrillers, adventure, action and sport movies, spy stories. Pavilions will become movie theaters where one can enjoy the entertainment. The main forecourt of the Fortezza da Basso will evoke a movie theatres district with billboards announcing the scheduled blockbusters, cult and indie movies. Creative direction by lifestyler Sergio Colantuoni.
