Expo 2015 ambassador Giorgio Armani celebrated 40th anniversary.
Italian fashion designer opened his contemporary art gallery 'Armani Silos'.



Hollywood stars from Tom Cruise to Leonardo DiCaprio to Cate Blanchett as well as such Italian legends as Sophia Loren attended at the 40th anniversary of Giorgio Armani's fashion empire. Tina Turner, Glenn Close, and Pierce Brosnan joined Italian directors Aurelio De Laurentis and Paolo Sorrentino, actor Raoul Bova, dancer Carla Fracci, actress Maria Grazia Cucinotta. These were some few names of the 450 guests from around the world that have partecipated at the event.

Armani Silos official website






Armani Silos which from now on, in number 40 Via Bergognone, will be at the disposal of whoever wants to know about the four decades of Armani style and its future. The big fashion show has featured a selection of the 10 years of Armani Privé high fashion.

The catwalk is prepared in the Armani Theatre in Via Bergognone, right in front of King George's new enterprise, namely the reconstruction of the complex of buildings and premises that were formerly a Nestlè factory, which the stylist-entrepreneur bought in 2006. This was an investment of some 50 million euros, which will represent a big economic commitment in terms of management. Design? Tadao Ando.






Visiting it is like a voyage through the fashion of Armani and its psychology. First of all there is the name Silos, so industrial and agricultural at the same time: "this building contained cereals, necessary to live, now it will contain clothes that also are necessary for life, so as to improve it," Armani says. "It seemed the right place 'to store' my collections. It is not like the usual museum, it is a permanent exhibit that will be renewed partially every six months".

On four floors, in an architectural style respecting the original rough cement that exalts elegance, grouped by theme there is the whole itinerary of pret-a-porter (600 outfits and 200 accessories). One passes from fluid jackets and many famous greige, from whites to stunning evening black, among festive dresses inspired by the orient and decò, very simple but also coloured, floral, spectacular: "this exhibit shows anyone who doesn't believe how I have been creative in many different, unexpected directions, that then became normal in fashion," Armani says.


The reconstruction work of the former industrial park is not finished - soon there will be other buildings and also "a space for the Armani Privé collections or perhaps Emporio, I must decide". Armani shows everything with the pride of someone who has busied himself personally with the project - in agreement with Milan city government - and its realisation. It's almost time for the triple celebration (the inauguration, the fashion show and the party), how does he feel to know his clothes still will be here a century from now? "I will be somewhere up there watching!" Armani says.

Milan Expo opens as Pope Francis warns it must 'globalise solidarity'.

Wrong. Black blocks have destroyed some store windows and cars along the streets. They have nothing to do with other people who have made a peaceful protest.

May 2, 2015 - Today, Italy show the real strength of Italy. "Nobody can stop Expo 2015". After black block damages, Milan shines again: groups of citizens clean up the city. Meanwhile Minister Martina reported that 11 mln tickets have been already sold; yesterday, more than 200,000 visitors at the Expo site.
