Is something no one’s ever done before. It’s the melting pot of people and the incredible reservoir of crafts. A unique and unforgettable experience for both tourists and citizens.
Behind the gates of historical buildings, magical courtyards and renovated centuries-old factories, the Italian genius, culture and artisanal savoir-faire become artefacts which we often experience just as a materialistic, final outcome. ApritiModa unveils its behind-the-scenes, the places where this prized artisanal process originates.
Opening the doors to these exceptional places means not only allowing visitors to experience first-hand their extraordinary beauty and uniqueness, but also putting in touch those who create fashion with those who live the cities. It means revealing the extraordinary wealth of skills, quality and knowledge. It means putting together, piece by piece, the mosaic of the most beautiful country in the world.
On Saturday 23th and Sunday 24th October 2021, ApritiModa will open one hundred doors, from the north to the south of the country. A trip through Italy aimed at discovering, experiencing and falling in love with the great names that represent us in the world and with the artisanal realities that, just here, exist and resist.
ApritiModa’s first edition was in Milan, in October 2017.
Then, in 2018, it was in Florence, the city of the first haute couture show.
In 2019 it was held again in Milan, where twenty thousand people lined up to live this unforgettable experience. And this year, a journey through Italy and its hidden gems.
ApritiModa will tell one hundred stories, one by one. Stories of places, of people, of businesses. The project was born from an idea of Cinzia Sasso and was realised together with Eleonora Grigoletto, Lidia Pezzoni, Emma Pradella, Andrea Chisu, Mariavittoria Zaglio, Marta Marcolin, Marialuisa Apreda.
