Florence is a city with a strong tradition of textiles and clothing manufacture. Labels such as Gucci, Coveri, Cavalli, Ferragamo and Patrizia Pepe began in the provincial capital and have become famous all over the world. Every year in Florence, a series of events occur which are among the most prestigious on the international scene, thanks to Pitti Immagine. The schedule consists – among other things – of Pitti Uomo, a world-famous collection of men’s fashion events,Pitti Bimbo, Pitti Filati, Pitti Fragranze and more, as well as events dedicated to gastronomy and home design. Accompanying the events are vernissages, shows, presentations, gala dinners and parties with special guests from the international fashion scene, movies and music. The events take place in several venues in the city, from Fortezza da Basso to the Odeon Cinema, the Leopolda Station and the Ponte Vecchio.
