Coinciding with Valentino Garavani’s 90th birthday and the unveiling of the Valentino Autumn/Winter 2022 Haute Couture collection in the heart of Rome, the exhibition is conceived as a vast panoramic view of the history of the Maison, embedded in scenography evoking the Eternal City, which has been Valentino’s home since its foundation in 1959.

Featuring over 200 Valentino Haute Couture pieces and pret-à-porter outfits — presented on mannequins by La Rosa —accompanied by accessories and fashion objects displayed in an immersive scenography, the exhibition weaves a richly textured image of the city of Rome inlaid with private memories and precious discoveries from the Maison’s six decades-long history, including rarely seen ensembles designed for the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Jacqueline Kennedy and, more recently, Zendaya, along with stunning creations and virtuosic examples of Valentino’s legendary cult of excellence.

The show is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, artistic director of the New Museum New York, and the fashion critic and author Alexander Fury, working closely with Valentino Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli.

The Forever Valentino app brings the exhibition experience to your fingertips, offering an exclusive showcase of the more than 200 garments on display.
