Marilyn Monroe – A Contemporary Myth
June, 2012 – March, 2013
Museo Salvatore Ferragamo
Florence, Italy

The Salvatore Ferragamo Museum pays homage to Marilyn Monroe with a major exhibition dedicated to her a half century after her death.  The curators have sought to interpret the genesis of certain famous photographs of Marilyn with art works representing the memory of similar poses and expressions. The exhibit, which is being held at the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo in Florence, features numerous images and film clips of the actress throughout her life and career.  The special tribute includes 30 pairs of shoes and over 50 outfits from the actress’s wardrobe.
