Atelier Longhi’s great designers

Atelier Longhi is named after Venetian painter Pietro Longhi, a 1700s’ artist especially renowned for his paintings of daily life, with constant references to the world of theater.

Tailor Francesco Briggi opened the Atelier in 1994 following his passion for history and costumes, and started creating precious, historical unique clothes and accessories. His pieces are inspired by works by Longhi as well as by other illustrious “muses” like Michelangelo, Raphael, William Hogarth, François Boucher and other great artists of the past, which Brigi loves and has studied for years.

The Atelier is an official partner of the Venice Carnival and an absolute point of reference for many of the companies having to do with historical re-enactments, such as Calcio Storico Fiorentino, the Venice Historical Regatta, the Noale Palio and the Festival of the Duke in Urbino.

There are also a number of museums, cinema and theater production companies, costume designers and collectors from the whole world who count on the Venetian workshop and its precision, leading to perfect reproductions that stem from careful analysis of historical paintings and original documents.
