“I vestiti dei sogni”, dreamy costumes in Rome

The clothes that populate our dreams have materialized for an exhibition in Rome’s Palazzo Braschi, ending on March 22. They are the film costumes that made generations of moviegoers swoon, from those worn by charming silent actors in black and white to the ones making today’s superheroes look even more super.

The exhibition is promoted by Assessorato alla Cultura di Roma and Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali to highlight the talent of Italian film costume designers by showcasing the “dreams” of great artists – including Academy Award winners Piero Tosi, Danilo Donati, Milena Canonero, and Gabriella Pescucci. Italy’s tradition of excellence in film costumes is honored by remembering its outstanding designers (Gino Carlo Sensani, Piero Gherardi, Maurizio Millenotti, Pier Luigi Pizzi, Gitt Magrin…) as well as the dozens of workshops where ideas turned into fabric: Devalle, Maison Gattinoni, Annamode, Tirelli Costumi, to mention but a few. Skills and patience, the exhibition attests, were just as important as talent – because, as actress Emma Gramatica once said, “if art is patience, cinema is the most sublime art of all”.

The exhibition is a wonderful kaleidoscope of silver screen memories and sartorial excellence: from Vittorio De Sica’s “Marriage Italian Style” to Stanley Kubrick’s “Barry Lyndon”, from Federico Fellini’s “Casanova” to Martin Scorsese’s “The Age of Innocence”, from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s “The Hawks and the Sparrows” to Sergio Leone’s “Duck, You Sucker!”, from Mario Monicelli’s “The Marquis of Grillo” to Nanni Moretti’s “Habemus Papam”…
