Emanuele Coccia e Anna Franceschini esplorano l’universo sensoriale di Gucci Garden Archetypes.
Il filosofo Emanuele Coccia e l’artista e ricercatrice Anna Franceschini ci guidano tra i mondi visionari di Gucci Garden Archetypes, lo spazio espositivo multi-sensoriale del Gucci Garden di Firenze dedicato alle campagne pubblicitarie degli ultimi sei anni di Alessandro Michele. Un’immersione nella caleidoscopica estetica del Direttore Creativo, in cui ogni atto creativo rappresenta un momento unico e irripetibile – un archetipo - fonte e alimento del dibattito su temi di portata universale, dove il confine tra passato, presente e futuro, tra storia, mitologia e utopia, si sposta continuamente.
