The exhibition dedicated to the award-winning costume designer Massimo Cantini Parrini is open in the rooms of the Museo del Tessuto (Fabric Museum) in Prato until 22nd March. The costumes designed for Matteo Garrone’s last film, “Pinocchio” which was released in December and with an exceptional cast, will be on display for the occasion. Cantini Parrini was assistant costume designer to another great figure in the world of film costumes, Gabriella Pascucci, who won an Oscar in 1993 for the film “L’età dell’innocenza” (“The age of innocence”).
The exhibition is divided into two sections: the first one is about the costume designer, his sources of inspiration, his creative work and his life on the set, the second one is about the costumes of the film, accompanied by stills from Pinocchio.
There are thirty-two costumes created by Massimo Cantini Parrini in the exhibition, including in particular those of Mister Geppetto, the Talking Cricket, Mangiafuoco and Pinocchio.
It is a captivating and immersive journey to experience one of the best loved Italian stories at first hand.
