Bianca Balti. Scenes from a fashion fairy tale

Type: Photography

The exhibition presents 30 photographs dedicated to the super model Bianca Balti. A solo exhibition that is an acknowledgment of the role that modeling has played for years in fashioning the Made in Italy style all over the world.

These 41 portraits by leading international photographers, such as Vincent Peters, Giampaolo Sgura, Settimio Benedusi, Ellen Von Unwerth, Camilla Akrans, Marcin Tyszka, Miles Aldridge, Patrick Demarchelier, Karl Lagerfeld, Txema Yeste, Signe Vilstrup, Dylan Don, aim to show the features of Balti's singular character: her enthralling fun and a playful energy evoking innocence and wonder.
The sleek and lightweight exhibition is designed to allow the visit it without obscuring the extraordinary context in which it is located, giving the guests also the pleasure of admiring the Markets of Trajan.
