Gucci celebrates its role in the 60th anniversary of the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana
With a series of events at the Gucci museum
On the occasion of "Firenze Hometown of Fashion, Gucci plans a series of unique events at the Gucci Museum and the renovated Richard Ginori store in Florence, in homage to the more than 90 year period during which its name has been irrevocably bound to the city of Florence.
On 17 June, the day on which the 86th edition of Pitti Uomo is inaugurated, Gucci will open the doors of its Gucci Museum to the entire city with the "Gucci Museum Open Day". A private cockatil will follow from 6pm to 10 pm.
Each night from 10-11pm beginning June 17th through to June 20th, Gucci will also pay homage to the city with a dramatic light show projected on the facade of the Gucci Museum; the light poem “da sempre per sempre” will be created by Mario Nanni, an internationally renowned designer and light artist who had already worked with the Gucci Museum for its 2011 inauguration.
Through this event, Gucci confirms its inseparable link with the city of Florence, one which has endured for over 90 years. This link was created and has been nurtured and is now stronger than ever thanks to the skills and passion of the craftspeople and all the others who have worked with Gucci over the years. Nowadays, manufacturing for Gucci involves over 45,000 people – all based in Italy – of which over 7,000 in the Florence area in the leather sector alone.
