For the celebration of the Italian genius Leonardo in the Parisian temple of art, Ferragamo decided to build an event totally framed within a “made in Italy” context: floral arrangements of roses, ranunculus, anemones and tulips in shades of red were delivered directly from Italy, and the dinner featured typical products from Tuscany.
