On Tuesday 10 January, the Limonaia at Palazzo dei Congressi, will stage “Dialoghi della Barba” (Beard Talks), a special talk-event by Dlui / la Repubblica, the outcome of an idea by Giovanna Zucconi, journalist and creator of the Serra&Fonseca/BeABeard brand.
Dialoghi della Barba is the first “festival of the beard”: words, images and music all about something that is not just a simple mass and fashion phenomenon. The beard is a tale of its wearers, an exploration of new forms of masculinity and emblem of diverse urban tribes and new creativity. A largely unexplored cultural territory that touches the history of thought and of costume, art and politics, music and fashion.
This third edition in Florence for Pitti Uomo (the first was held at the IED in Milan in April 2016 and the second in Turin in November this year, at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudendo) features: Simone Marchetti, Saturnino, Giovanni Gastel and Mario Calabresi who will be interviewing a famous person, whose identity is still a secret. Directed by Giovanna Zucconi.
