On occasion of Pitti Uomo 85, Villa Bardini and Museo Bardini will be hosting the two sections of the anthological exhibition “Aldo Fallai. From Giorgio Armani to the Renaissance. Photographs from 1978 to 2013” (10 January – 16 March, followed by a tour), curated by art historian Martina Corgnati and by Carlo Sisi and Luigi Salvioli, the brain and organiser behind the event.
The famous photographer’s first great monographic exhibition, it rebuilds Fallai’s complete career from 1978 to the present day, for the first time underlining all of the work by this all-round leading figure in photo image research of the last thirty years.
Aldo Fallai won over the fashion world at the end of the 1970s, above all thanks to his collaboration with Giorgio Armani, with whom he helped to create the most important advertising campaigns in recent decades, thus putting his name to some of the most exciting chapters in the history of Italian design. A creative career summed up in 150 shots which allow visitors to rediscover the excellence of Italian fashion at the zenith of its appeal and innovation: the 1980s.
By playing with roles and situations, using captivating models with a seductive range of expression, Aldo Fallai rebuilt a world that went beyond the clothes to portray the feelings, moods, places and times of a whole society and generation.
