Neon pink walls and mannequins with the beautiful clothes of the Spring/Summer collection overlook the glittering showcase on the famous Via Spinetti, which becomes a Via Montenapoleone of the Tuscan tourist destination.

Thus the artist Doug Aitken, creator of the impactful work of art that was the backdrop to the show of the Menswear SS22 collection by Anthony Vaccarello, describes his installation with an ecological soul, which will remain accessible in the context of the Biennale of Architecture until 30 July and will then be donated to the City of Venice.
