Designers have their own distinct way of understanding the world,  “Artists and scientists operate in the physical world as it exists in the present; mathematicians operate on abstract relationships; designers treat as real what exists in a imagined future and show how the foreseen thing can be made” John Chris Jones, 1992 

As a matter of fact, designers can give a shape to an idea and are naturally born to anticipate times. This is a talent which belongs to people with an outstanding personality, unique identity, strong beliefs and passion for life. Italians are renowned in the world for their  passion for design,  which  is inspired by history, driven by a unique relationship with art, fueled by an outstanding ability to innovate and adapt tradition to new needs, enhanced by craftsmanship and traditional gestures. 

The bio of Ilaria Venturini Fendi, one of the most innovative designers and entrepreneurs in the fashion industry today, distinguished member of the BAU community in Rome, leading coach and mentor of  Minimaster in Fashion Design,  provides a valuable example of how a natural born Italian designer has innovated  the fashion industry - one of the industries most subject to change rapidly and unpredictably - with her passion for eternity, durability,  ethics and aestethics. "Things should be beautiful but also good": Ilaria tells the celebrity wish maker Simonetta Lein why Ethical Fashion is becoming the Rule (read interview).

Ferragamo Museum: across art and fashion

The name of Salvatore Ferragamo is indissolubly associated with Made in Italy shoes. Born in 1898 near Avellino, a small town near Naples, he started to work as shoemaker. In 1915 he left for California where he started a successful business thanks to his Hollywood Boot Shop. When he was 29 he came back to Italy and moved to Florence. His business was more successful than ever. After his death, in 1960, his wife and sons went on leading the maison.

The Ferragamo Museum is a delight for fashion lovers. It is located at the ground floor of Palazzo Spini Feroni, a medieval palace built in 1289 and purchased by the city of Florence in 1846. It has been hosting the Ferragamo Museum since 1938.

Inside the museum there is a wide collection of shoes, exposed in rotation every 2 years according thematic criteria. There are also famous shoes created for Hollywood stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo and Audrey Hepbourn.

The museum promotes cultural events, exhibitions and contests to find new talents. It also support scholarships for young shoe designers.
