Archetypes is a word that expresses the existence = archetype that is the source of various images, and Gucci’s advertising campaign is exactly the archetype of Gucci’s world. The exhibition recreates the world of Gucci’s advertising campaign and invites you to an epic journey to explore the vision of the brand’s creative director, Alessandro Michele.

“I found it interesting to invite people to this six-year adventure and travel around the world of fantasy, stories, surprises and dazzling sparkles. So, it’s like entering the world of advertising campaigns. We decided to create a space of play that was full of emotion, because the advertising campaign best embodies my image…”said Alessandro Michele, curator of the exhibition.
