Gianni Versace’s career spanned between the late 1970s and the tragic incident that ended his life in 1997. In those years, the dressmaker gave birth to a whole aesthetic universe in which he gathered the most diverse influences, taken from all the history of art, but especially of Greco-Roman antiquity. 

With his work, based on constant experimentation on form and material, Versace outlined a new type of woman and forever changed the fashion scene, thanks above all to his media projection. 

Along with the twenty or so costumes on display, a dozen pieces from the old National Sculpture Museum seek to illustrate this surprising affinity between classical art and Versace’s designs.
