The new theme of the Spazio Ricerca

Further evolution for the structure of the Research Space and Fashion at Work area, the fulcrum of all the creativity related expression. An experimental observatory that analyses and launches trends, the Research Space at Pitti Filati 71 uses RENAISSANCE, the theme and title of this season, to explore what has made Italy great worldwide: the culture of design and the manual artisan skill involved in its creation. Renaissance, contemporary rebirth, draws on history but looks to the future. It has two main themes: drawing and design, one the extension of the other, in constant dialogue between tradition and innovation. Disegno e Design are the extremes of a lengthy timeline where history and tradition relate with new needs and new contemporary languages: a line drawn from the 1500s to date. Under the artistic direction of fashion designer Angelo Figus and the knit expert Nicola Miller.
