THE MÉTIERS D'ART 2015/16 SHOW
AT CINECITTÀ

Cinecittà, the city of cinema – built in just eighteen months prior to its grand inauguration in 1937 – houses twenty-one studios over nearly sixty hectares, with five giant film sets and a special pool for ocean scenes and naval battles. Three hundred films were shot there in its first six years, but the studios really took off in the 1950s when Mervyn LeRoy filmed his epic "Quo Vadis" there. Cinecittà became known as Hollywood on the Tiber as its low running costs drew major American film productions in increasing numbers: 150 epics were shot there over the following fifteen years, including "Ben Hur", "Spartacus", and "Cleopatra".

Federico Fellini once said his favourite place in the whole world was Cinecittà's Studio 5, where he shot a series of major works from "La Dolce Vita" and "8 1/2" to "Casanova" and "Ginger and Fred", including "Intervista", a homage to the studios. Cinecittà was also home to such masterpieces as Vittorio De Sica's "Bicycle Thief", William Wyler's "Roman Holiday", and Luchino Visconti's "The Leopard". The sets are still used for many of the world's leading film productions to this day, from Anthony Minghella's "English Patient" to Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" and Martin Scorcese's "Gangs of New York".

Cinecittà has been chosen to host Karl Lagerfeld's Paris in Rome 2015/16 Métiers d'Art show on December 1st.

SILK ORGANZA

Organza is a silk toile, one of the most precious fabrics. Its delicate, airy fluidity is here put to good use in a patchwork, where the shades of pink create an iridescent effect.
