Dear Diane dear
Hat-ology is a tribute to Anna Piaggi curated by Stephen Jones with the artistic direction of Marco Maccapani, Angelo Jelmini and Ivo Bisignano. The cozy exhibition takes us through a showcased sixty out of 600 hats from Anna's personal collection. She loved to wear hats and wore them with unparalleled ease on all occasions.
The idea of the exhibition is to take us through the world of Anna Piaggi : her house, her
kitchen, her press room, her bed room. Poetic artworks and illustrations by Ivo Bisignano set the mood along with a video ( Anna and
Marcel ). The film reveals the soul of Anna as seen through the eyes of Ivo Bisignano and makes us understand her intimate and daily life. It is about a surreal encounter with Anna and Proust. The installation is very moving and individuals, like Rosita Missoni , and other friends of Anna's from the fashion world remembered her.
The exhibition is a little gem, intimate and delicate, to see and admire
in silence ..
The exhibition runs until 30th of november: Palazzo Morando enter from Via Bagutta 24, don't miss if you are in Milan!
