The second exhibition, "MILAN (photographs 1956-1962)" is a selection of Di Paolo's images dedicated to the city so loved by the photographer because it is so different from Rome: "It was like going abroad ...". An unprecedented look at a beautiful Milan and its mists.
The tribute to the city of Milan continues in the Bulgari space in via Montenapoleone 2 with other unpublished shots on the multiple and poetic "faces" of the city. In addition to the ability to portray moments of everyday life, Paolo Di Paolo's talent has been able to grasp the charisma and beauty of the great actresses of the Dolce Vita who have made entire generations move, laugh and dream.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Bulgari was the favorite jeweler of Italian divas or those passing through Italy to work on major Hollywood productions. Chased by the paparazzi, immortalized on social occasions or in moments of private life, the actresses love to wear their jewels on and off the set as luminous symbols of charm and personal taste.
To enhance the alliance with Bulgari for this project, the Sozzani Foundation bookshop dedicates a focus to Anna Magnani, Elizabeth Taylor and Gina Lollobrigida, portrayed by Di Paolo with Bulgari jewels during parties and theatrical performances; Also on display are reproductions of the original sketches of the jewels worn, from the Maison's Historical Archive.
