Pitti Immagine with a celebrative stamp and exhibition “The Fashion Mailbox”

Pitti Immagine will be thirty years old in 2019. In fact, back in January 1989 it was actually Pitti Immagine Uomo that inaugurated the group’s new name and all the other fairs followed on its heels. To celebrate this anniversary a stamp dedicated to Pitti Immagine will be issued – created by Italo Lupi, one of the best known and most highly esteemed Italian designers in the world – and an exhibition, The Fashion Mail Box, about the relationships between the world of fashion and that of stamps to be staged in the Pitti Uomo Press Room at the Fortezza: around 80 stamps particularly beautiful and in some cases very rare, linked to fashion from all over the world. The issue of the Pitti Immagine stamp by the Italian Ministry for Economic Development was realized thanks to the Istituto Poligrafico, Zecca dello Stato and Poste Italiane, and the official presentation will take place on Tuesday 8 January, during the official inauguration of Pitti Uomo (Palazzo Vecchio – 10.30 a.m.) and at the same time in the Fortezza da Basso (Entrance Hall).
