We don’t know what will happen but we know when.
From 11 to 14 June, we will meet in Florence ready to click the SPECIAL CLICK of Pitti Immagine Uomo.

The 96th edition of the famous event dedicated to the man is (will be) a discreet homage to itself: to the energy, to the research, to the melting-pot that every six months make us return to the The House of Medici city. The theme – The Pitti Special Click, precisely – summarizes the energy that circulates in the imposing Fortezza da Basso (the heart of the event) and that season after season is channeled into different paths: always new, sometimes unexpected.

We don’t know what will happen but we know what we will see, at least formally.

Below a list, more or less complete, of the main events, the most awaited shows, the sections to watch … CLICK (and read)!
