Pitti Immagine Uomo: Men’s Fashion Fair of Florence

One of the most visited attractions in the city of Florence is Michelangelos David statue. The larger-than-life man of marble has been famous for centuries, a symbol of male beauty and a model of sculptural skill. Notably, David wears no clothing. However, if he were a flesh-and-blood man of the modern world he would have plenty of local designers waiting to dress his perfect physique. Indeed, many of the icons of mens fashion hail from Italy. Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Ferragamo, Prada and Versace are only a few of the fashion houses based in Italy whose clothing is coveted by the best dressed men (and women!) all over the world.
