Dolce & Gabbana Exhibition at Palazzo Reale in Milan

For the first time in Milan, Palazzo Reale hosts an exhibition celebrating the artistic and creative legacy of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. At Palazzo Reale the imagination and savoir faire of the stylists: "We turn to young people to tell them about the beauty they have inside". The “From the Heart to the Hands” exhibition journey is structured into a series of sections showcasing the creations of Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria, and Alta Gioielleria, intertwined with a rich tapestry of cultural influences that have inspired the work of the two designers: spanning from craftsmanship to visual arts, from architecture to Italian traditions, from innovation to theatre, from music to opera, from ballet to la dolce vita.

 The exhibition is curated by Florence Müller, promoted by the Municipality of Milan – Culture, and produced by Palazzo Reale and IMG, a global leader in events.

Discover the narrative behind Dolce&Gabbana's couture collections in an immersive exhibition that showcases the intricate craftsmanship that goes into every piece. Featuring unique items from their Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria, and Alta Gioielleria collections, "From the Heart to the Hands: Dolce&Gabbana" runs from 7 April to 31 July at the Palazzo Reale in Milan. Come and explore the creative process and sources of inspiration that bring their creations to life! Each room of the exhibition will display Dolce&Gabbana’s bespoke creations against a backdrop of spectacular installations that plunge you into the heart of their world.

In the 10 rooms of the palace’s Piano Nobile, there is one surprise after another. Visitors are welcomed in a room inspired by the splendor of the Venetian Scuola Grande di San Rocco, which houses the most beautiful works by Tintoretto. A large gallery with a mirrored ceiling and chandeliers displays the paintings of Anh Duong, a longtime muse of the designers, framing a group of papier-mâché mannequins wearing dresses made of embroidery and the crystals that are the result of elaborate tailoring techniques. A curtain opens and magically you enter the ballroom of Luchino Visconti’s The Leopard, then you cross a threshold and enter a sanctum sanctorum of haute couture and exquisite jewelry creations. The ballroom of Palazzo Valguarnera-Gangi, in Palermo, where one of the most famous sequences of Visconti’s film was shot, has been meticulously recreated and hosts a magnificent gown inspired by the film. “That film is a fundamental reference for us,” Dolce explains, “it is also emblematic of the opposite dynamics that guide fashion, always torn between the past and future.”

Numerous celebrities flocked to Milan to pay tribute to the two Italian designers, including Cher, Demi Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, Helen Mirren, Theo James, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Lily James, Anitta, Isabella Rossellini, Naomi Campbell, Doyoung, Mun KaYoung, Eva Herzigova, Bianca Balti, Kitty Spencer, Isabeli Fontana, Mariacarla Boscono, Olivia Culpo, Alton Mason, Lucien Laviscount, Yuta Tamamori, Davide Calabria, Theo Hernandez, David Gandy and Adam Senn.
