MILAN — The Ferragamo Foundation and the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum will unveil a new exhibition in Florence on Wednesday.

“Across Art and Fashion” is to explore links between two creative realms that mutually influenced each other over centuries.

The showcase – organized in collaboration with several cultural institutions, including Florence Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale, the Gallerie degli Uffizi, Museo Marino Marini and Prato’s Textile Museum — is curated by fashion expert Maria Luisa Frisa, along with Enrica Morini, Stefania Ricci and Alberto Salvadori.
