During the Florence Art Week, three unique tapestries created by the textile manufacturer Bonotto will be presented to the public on Thursday, October 5th, in an event titled STEFANO CHIASSAI TAPESTRIES.

As part of the project “Drawing everyday. Diario visivo di Stefano Chiassai,” curated by Valentina Gensini, in collaboration with ADI, an entirely new exhibition space is being added: the Anna Banti Hall.

These three large-scale tapestries, woven from the drawings of the renowned fashion designer, represent three different approaches: solidarity with Iranian Women: They depict his solidarity with the struggles of Iranian women, represented by him in demonstrations for their rights, in a striking black and white contrast; the Ukrainian War: They delve into the tragedy of the war in Ukraine, where civilian populations have been enduring months of bombardments and are in constant need of help; personal Vitality: Lastly, Stefano Chiassai’s personal vitality shines through. He responds to the tragedies of history with an explosion of energy, inviting the public not to give up and to maintain a childlike perspective.

The tapestries will be presented to the public on October 5th at 5:30 PM, along with a talk by Stefano Chiassai, Perla Gianni (ADI), and Giovanni Bonotto (master weaver at the Bonotto textile factory), dedicated to the design and technique of tapestry. This will be followed by the opening of the new exhibition hall.

Stefano Chiassai

Stefano Chiassai graduated from the Istituto Statale d’Arte in Florence. In 1980, he created his brand “STEFANO CHIASSAI”, and a few years later, in 1985, he founded “SCS Studio Chiassai”. In 1987, his idea of fashion represented Italian style at the Barcelona Youth Biennial. From 1988 to 2000, he took on the role of lecturer at Polimoda in Florence, where he taught “Menswear Fashion Design”. Since 1994, following the closure of his own brand, the... Studio has focused on providing stylistic and trend consultancy services for numerous brands.
Chiassai’s work is rooted in the luxury sector with projects characterized by a strong urban influence. From the early 2000s, he has designed various menswear lines on an international level. His approach is based on an aesthetic that seeks to reconcile traditional craftsmanship with new technologies. Since 2009, with the support of his team, he has been the designer for the men’s clothing lines at “Fendi Uomo”.
Fashion research has always been central to his modus operandi. Over time, he has collected 20.000 vintage garments and accessories, which are now kept at “TheCube Archive”, an exclusive fashion archive.
