Italy has always been a very important reference point: Milan, Rome and Florence are the cities that have always been the city that has always been the most important showcases of the big fashion houses. Rome has been chosen by the largest Italian fashion houses to make know the public the finest collections of clothes, shoes, accessories and jewelery designed and made by artisans of fashion that make each garment unique.
Via del Corso
The oldest street of the city and connects Piazza Venezia to Piazza del Popolo and in ancient times was used for horse racing. Today is the main street in what is called Trident Fashion.
A second reference point for fashion in Rome is the road that leads to the Spanish Steps in the Street Racing, named for the pipelines linking the various aqueducts in the area. Today is the road that has the finest luxury shops of both national and international designers: Dior, Gucci, Hermes, Valentino, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton and many others.
At the end of this important road is the Embassy of Spain, but in the 60s it becomes a reference point for fashion and, in particular, for tailoring, silverware and supplies.
Via del Babuino
In Rome there is a small half-kilometer road hidden in the historic center characterized by explicit elegance. His name is linked to a fountain so bad as to be called the Baboon fountain that is located along the road home to antique shops that still offer the best examples of Haute Couture.
