The culture of the past, the style of the present and the vision of the future at Pitti Uomo with Battistoni

The culture of the past, the style of the present and the vision of the future have characterised the first 70 years of business for Battistoni, a name which, ever since it opened in 1946, has crossed Italian borders to reach the US market, resulting in a series of collections of ties, shirts, suits and accessories.

Quality is the lifeblood inherent in every garment, the perceived benefit from those who love to dress with style, located in that slightly hidden corner of Rome, despite being on Via Condotti, where Gianni Battistoni welcomes guests to create tailor-made clothes and propose personalised combinations of fabrics and colours.

The world’s biggest film stars have always sought this exclusivity and Italian charm, finding that, in addition to fashion, the boutique offers a blend of art and culture. Artists such as Balthus, Andy Warhol, Schifano and Capogrossi have passed through its doors, and have also created works for their friend Battistoni, like the Marte perfume bottle, designed by Guttuso. A special place, where the greatest actors, from Marlon Brando to Richard Burton, had suits, shirts and ties created for them for special events, for everyday life or for their free time.
