Photographs by Aldo Fallai for Giorgio Armani

Photographs by Aldo Fallai for Giorgio Armani

The first great retrospective exhibition of work by Florentine photographer, Aldo Fallai, at the Villa Bardini and Museo Bardini through March 16, 2014, represents Fallai’s complete career from 1978 to the present in Aldo Fallai. From Giorgio Armani to the Renaissance.

If you have ever flipped through a fashion magazine, you probably have seen his images without knowing the photographer. Aldo Fallai caught the attention of the fashion world at the end of the 1970s, greatly due to his collaboration with designer Giorgio Armani, with whom he helped create one of the most important photographic advertising campaigns in recent decades. Fallai was not only photographing models, but he was creating an image and lifestyle of a whole society and generation based on Italian design. By the 1980s, Fallai was framing a classy image of the era. Around the same time, Armani’s suit for women created a seductive symbol of strength and power.

A section dedicated to Tuscany in the 16th century presents the exhibition within a Renaissance context.
