A book that focuses on Florence’s long and fruitful relationship with fashion; not only the fashion that lives and works in the city, but also the one that arrives from all over the world on the occasion of the events staged here, reinterpreting places and tracing new routes. Florence is the only city in Italy that is able to bring its geography and its history back to life each year thanks to fashion. Its places, stories and protagonists are bound together in a brilliant and pulsating galaxy of contemporary life. An unprecedented and refined effort of research in the archives has made it possible to tell the story through a sequence of images from the last 60 years with Florence as the background.
