On display are around 120 ensembles and accessories by leading Italian fashion houses and the exhibition follows the story from the landmark catwalk shows in the 1950s to the impact of Hollywood films shot on location in Italy during the 1950s/60s where stars like Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor became style ambassadors for Italian fashion.
