Dear Shaded Viewers,

This season Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana were inspired by the mosaic of Monreale, the city became important around the XI century with the arrival of the Normans in Sicily. THe Cathedral of Monreale, consecrated to Santa Maria Nuova, was built between 1172 and 1185. In the top half of the walls a series of golden mosaics were created betweenthe end of 1100 and the middle of 1200. Local artists and experts from Byzantium and Venice were called upon to create these works of art. Dolce & Gabbana used artisans to create mosaics on their shoes, dresses, jewels and bags. In harmony with the collection, "La strada' by Nino Rota, "I clowns", "Il Bidone" and "Boccaccio '70" was used for the soundtrack to the show.
