“From the Heart to the Hands: Dolce&Gabbana” presents, for the first time on display, the unique creations of the fashion house. An open love letter to Italian culture, inspiration of the spirit of Dolce&Gabbana since its origins, retracing the extraordinary creative process of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana: from the heart, from which ideas arise, to the hands, the instrument through which they take shape .

The exhibition, which will be inaugurated in Milan and then reach various international stages, will celebrate the brand as a symbol of Italian style through the dream of Haute Couture, and will explore its unconventional approach to the world of luxury: elegant, sensual and unique, but at the same time funny, irreverent and revolutionary.

Curated by Florence Müller and produced by IMG, the exhibition will also present various artistic expressions in dialogue with the creative universe of Dolce&Gabbana.

The archive and the new collections will be displayed in a succession of thematic sections that will highlight the various aspects of Italian culture that have always inspired the work of Dolce&Gabbana – among these, art, architecture, craftsmanship, cities and their regional topography , music, opera and ballet, popular traditions, theater and la dolce vita .

To further enrich the visitor experience, included in the exhibition ticket, every Thursday and Friday from 4pm to 6pm, the spaces are animated by seamstresses and tailors coming directly from the Dolce&Gabbana atelier, to offer an authentic vision and dynamics of the ongoing creative process.
