The importance of Italians and their love for fashion can never be emphasized enough and today, a special exhibition Men in Italy opens up in Milan which celebrates the new generation of creators. 25 photographers and 25 stylists (many Italian), including Anna Dello Russo, Giampaolo Sgura, Milan Vukmirovic, Sara Maino, Satoshi Saikusa were asked to present a visual that represented what they thought of the Italian man’s style. Casting director Piergiorgio Del Moro gives us a special preview of the exhibition that runs alongside the Milan men’s shows.
