Collateral exhibition 25th Edition
In partnership with: Villa Foscarini Rossi Shoes Museum
A detour into the world of shoes: a walk through key examples of the history of creativity and fashion but also of Made in Italy, of how the skilled hands of our designers and craftsmen were able to make a significant difference globally in fashion, a sector in which Italy continues to be market leader.
Through the collaboration with the Shoes Museum and its staff, Mercanteinfiera will have on display a representative selection of shoes from a collection that makes both the company and the museum a national pride and an example of high-end collecting.
It will be an opportunity to understand how a fragment of the Veneto region and Italian know-how stand behind a number of pieces made famous by international brands such as Celine, Donna Karan, Kenzo and Pucci, just to name a few.
Today more than ever shoes attract attention not just as accessories but as key elements of fashion looks: going back to their origins, finding out how footwear originated and evolved, and looking at shoes that have made history, will be an opportunity for a journey not just through this sector but also through the evolution of tastes and customs.
