The exhibition explores the connections between Pucci, the city of Como and its textile factories, a collaboration that began in the '50s and never stopped in the following decades.

On display textile samples, original drawings by Pucci, test-samples, accessories and clothing, that document the work in progress of the products; and moreover, dresses and foulards along with the photos that made them famous.
