Hats on Film/ Il Cappello nel Cinema
We are crazy about movies, and especially costumes in films. I my self wrote my thesis on the role of hats in films combining history of costume, semiotics and film analysis. We could not resist and had to share with you the news about the amazing show that is going on in Los Angeles untill March 8 entitled "Hats on Film/ Il Cappello nel Cinema". An initiative by Neri Torrigani in collaboration Giuseppe Grevi president of the consortium "Il Cappello di Firenze" and Stefania Ippoliti, director of Mediateca Toscana/ Film Commission, to promote hats and its italian craftsmanship around the world.
Let me tell you, a hat can give a character a meaning. The shape of a hat can determine the role of a character inside a plot and we find it genius, that finally, something was done to celebrate this unique gift that we have in Tuscany of making gorgeous hats with Hollywood: the heart of film making.Italy is proud to have such an amazing talent that has lasted in years, that continues to be made 100% in Tuscany, and that nowdays more than ever makes us proud to be italian. Tradion does not mean old, tradition can also go with innovation as wee see every year when these companies show us that it is possible to compete in the market, look updated and totally in style, but still come from a completely homemade reality.
"Pretty Woman", " A Tè With Mussolini" "Sex and the City" are among the many titles of movies where one can find collaborations with Tuscan industries such as Grevi, Memar and Marzi.
We have not seen the show, but Neri Torrigiani and all the other contributors we know really succeeded on celebrating the tradition of italian craftsmanship and cinema. Marina - Le Sartú
