EIGHT UNIQUE PIECES BY ALBERTA FERRETTI
at Palazzo Mocenigo
From 21 December 2021 until 16 February 2022
Venice, Museum of Palazzo Mocenigo
Last September, Alberta Ferretti hosted a fashion show event at Ca’ Rezzonico in support of the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia to celebrate the 1600th anniversary of the foundation of Venice. These special pieces can be viewed inside of the Portego of Palazzo Mocenigo Center of Studies Fabric, Costume and Perfume, starting 21 December 2021 until mid-February 2022.
A selection of eight unique pieces from the “A tribute to Venice” collection enriches the large hall of Palazzo Mocenigo, which was once used to celebrate Venetian nobility. The blown Murano glass jewels by artist Massimiliano Schiavon made exclusively for Alberta Ferretti complete the dresses.
To recreate the mise en scène of a fashion show, a catwalk with reflective black glass welcomes these unique pieces, creating a dialogue between the clothing and the historical, decorative room.
Once the exhibition ends, the pieces will be donated to the Museum of Palazzo Mocenigo and become a part of its permanent collection, further solidifying the bond between Alberta Ferretti and the city of Venice.
