Yarn: Thread or Story , a special exhibition dedicated to Made in Como Beauty!
From July 29th till Septemebr 3rd 2015 at Villa del Grumello in Como, exactly in the suggestive setting of its old greenhouses.
Fabrics and accessories telling the history of Como textile manufacture. The exhibit wants to let people know who designed, made and wore them; a kind of backstage to reveal unknown anecdotes like the celebreties who wore them on special occasions, the stylists who created these dream garments, their productive process and all this without forgetting the interesting aspects lied to technology.
The aim is to produce a storytelling of the “Made in Como”, emphasizing beauty, identity and uniqueness but also proudly underlining that Como is the cradle of the textile product above all, in terms of fashion and technology.
The textiles on show were kindly given by some of the main local companies, which gave birth to the fame of Como as the Italian silk capital; Canepa Spa, FPR Spa, Girani Spa, Ratti Spa, Taroni Spa, Seride Srl.
The exhibition’s concept and set up has been cared by the Visual Art Department of the Aldo Galli IED Fine Arts Academy of Como.
Do not miss the opportunity to get in touch with this meaningful side of Como’s tradition and history, with the authentical Italian style!
On from July 29th to Sept 3rd – Tuesdays to Sundays 10:00am- 12:00 ; 2:00pm- 6:00pm
