A portrait of the time Hollywood was a village
The years spent by Salvatore Ferragamo in California at the dawn of the movie industry, in the 1920s, are the source of inspiration for the exhibition project of the Museum devoted to him: from his collaboration with the most famous directors of the time to the opening of the Hollywood Boot Shop(reconstructed here), frequented by stars such as Mary Pickford, Pola Negri, Charlie Chaplin, Joan Crawford, Lillian Gish and Rudolph Valentino.
The world of art and its evolution
Starting from here, there is an investigation of the migratory phenomenon and the influence exerted on the world of art, craftsmanship and entertainment by the Hollywood myth and by Italian culture in California. Curiosity: you can find forty of the three hundred iconic, famous portraits on ceramic plates that Piero Fornasetti made of the actress Lina Cavalieri on display in the exhibition.
