    Made in Italy 1945 - 2014

    In our Spring 2014 exhibition The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945 – 2014 we celebrated the very best of the last 70 years of Italian fashion design. But what else was being produced in the country during this time? This board brings together some of the most beautiful and influential examples of post-war Italian art and design to be found in our collections. From Murano glass to Milanese furniture, these objects were all Made in Italy.
