ITS Arcademy – Museum of Art in Fashion is the first museum of contemporary fashion in Italy. Housed in a historical building just a few steps away from the magnificent Piazza Unità d'Italia, it is a forward-thinking international cultural destination, with a developing programme of exhibitions, events and educational experiences aimed at fostering creativity.
The ITS Arcademy Collection is unique in the world. It contains over 14,000 items - garments, accessories, jewellery and creative project portfolios gathered over the 20 editions of ITS Contest - one of the world's leading platforms for emerging creative talent. It contains the early works of some of the most talented international fashion and accessory designers, many of whom are now established - from the Creative and Artistic Directors of Maisons like Bottega Veneta and Balenciaga, to the winner of Queen Elizabeth II’s inaugural Design Award, to designers whose work is featured in popular movies and Netflix series. Guest curator of the inaugural ‘The First Exhibition – 20 Years of Contemporary Fashion Evolution ‘ is Olivier Saillard, renowned fashion historian who has headed important international museums such as the Palais Galliera in Paris
