(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 22 – A boom in attendance at “The Sweet Sixties. Narratives of fashion”, the exhibition on 1960s fashion curated by Stefano Dominella and Guillermo Mariotto, which took place at the Armerie Superiori de Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, from March 27 to May 21. There were 82,000 visitors in the 2 months it was open to the public, with an average turnout of almost 4,000 visitors per day.
After Rome, the exhibition will be installed in the halls of the Museum of Decorative Arts of Montenegro. “It is not the first time -says the director of the museum- that the famous Roman monument has opened its doors to present one of the most interesting manifestations of our creativity, fashion, with its ability to interpret historical periods and evoke atmospheres and suggestions. In this exhibition, the representation of the sixties through clothing styles allows us to relive one of the densest periods of innovation and transgression in our most recent history”. “The exhibition has as its primary objective social and educational purposes – adds Dominella. – The exposed looks are the result of careful research in the most important historical archives of Italy to narrate the past and make you discover the present through eco-sustainability as upcycling and recycling”.
“An exhibition that returns with great force -said the undersecretary of Culture Lucia Borgonzoni- one of the innate abilities of fashion: to create culture. The work of selecting the looks and the journey of the five narrative threads perfectly achieve the objective of representing all the creative energy of a decade that marked history and whose voice still resonates today.” “From the Ministry we are working so that the fashion is increasingly valued precisely as culture and that it has the tools to overcome the challenges of the future.
In order to promote the sustainability of cultural and creative companies, including fashion companies, and to encourage an ecological approach throughout the entire supply chain and responsible behavior towards the environment and climate, we have decided to allocate funds from the Pnrr ( we will publish tenders for an amount equivalent to 30 million euros) to accompany the green transition of the sector”.
