The pulsating heart of Italian fashion and culture, Milan, is finally ready to delight art lovers with a series of incredible exhibitions, with the exceptional exhibition “Aldo Fallai for Giorgio Armani, 1977-2021” at Armani/Silos standing out.
On the occasion of this unmissable exhibition, Giorgio Armani, along with Rosanna Armani and Leo Dell’Orco, joins forces to offer an intimate look at almost thirty years of collaboration with the talented Florentine photographer Aldo Fallai. This monographic exhibition is the result of a magical artistic dialogue, a celebration of the synergy between Armani’s sartorial mastery and Fallai’s sensitive eye.
“My work with Giorgio was the result of a natural and continuous dialogue, and of great trust on his part. Both of us were interested in highlighting an aspect of style linked to character and personality, and this translated into images that appear as relevant today as they did yesterday: a quality made evident by the exhibition setup, which does not follow a chronological sequence. Of the thirty years of our collaboration, I have vivid memories. The productions were always agile, slim: the result was achieved with few means and without special effects. I think this made an impact on the audience,” said Aldo Fallai.
The official inauguration took place on December 4th. However, the real show was unveiled to the public starting from December 5th when the doors of Armani/Silos opened, revealing a world of enchanting images and visual stories that narrate the evolution of a timeless style.

“Working with Aldo allowed me, right from the start, to turn the fantasy I had in mind into real images: that my clothes were not only made in a certain way, with certain colors and materials, but represented a way of being, of living. Because style, for me, is a total expression. Together, in a dialogue that was always fluid and concrete, we created scenes of life, evoked atmospheres, outlined portraits full of character. And reviewing all the work done today, I am struck by the strong suggestion that these shots still manage to emanate, and by Aldo’s great ability to capture the nuances of personality,” concludes Giorgio Armani.
