The exhibition will be open to the public with free admission from Friday to 25 March, 2018.

Through decades, Fendi has manufactured several outfits, accessories and fur pieces for international movies — from Italian new wave to American blockbusters. And from there, comes the idea to feature those movies in one unique exhibition.

The exhibition will let the visitors immerse into a digital experience where they could interact and reinvent the movies, by entering "into the scenes" and being themselves the protagonists, while at the same time discovering Fendi's iconic pieces. They will be able to take selfies and share in real time this unique experience.
