FLORENCE PITTI UOMO 86 | ECCENTRIPITTI DAY ONE

Made in Italy fashion, the international success, was born in Florence at the beginning of the 1950s. Ever since then, Florence has made its planning, organizational, cultural and financial resources available for promoting Italian fashions throughout the world. This year the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana is celebrating its 60th anniversary and therefore, on today’s DAY ONE of Pitti Immagine Uomo 86 (until June 20, 2014) launched a program of special events produced in cooperation with Pitti Immagine and with special grants from the Italian Ministry for Economic Development and ICE. The network created for this occasion is a model of integrated strategies among public and private institutions – those that work in the interests of the system – that is destined to become a reference point for all policies supporting Italian fashion and for those whose duty is to promote the fashion industry.

FLORENCE PITTI UOMO 86 | THE PITTI PRINCESSES

To photograph is to appropriate the thing photographed. It means putting oneself into a certain relation to the world that feels like knowledge — and, therefore, like power. A now notorious first fall into alienation, habituating people to abstract the world into printed words, is supposed to have engendered that surplus of Faustian energy and psychic damage needed to build modern, inorganic societies. But print seems a less treacherous form of leaching out the world, of turning it into a mental object, than photographic images, which now provide most of the knowledge people have about the look of the past and the reach of the present. What is written about a person or an event is frankly an interpretation, as are handmade visual statements, like paintings and drawings. Photographed images do not seem to be statements about the world so much as pieces of it, miniatures of reality that anyone can make or acquire.
