Gucci to Host Manga Exhibit in Italy

Artist Hirohiko Araki is holding his first exhibition in Italy from Friday through July 14 at the luxury brand’s showroom on Via delle Caldaie in Florence.

MANGA IN ITALY: Gucci has a thing for Japanese design: Manga artist Hirohiko Araki is holding his first exhibition in Italy from Friday through July 14 at the luxury brand’s showroom on Via delle Caldaie in Florence.

Only last January, Araki collaborated with Gucci for an exclusive manga window installation, “Jolyne, Fly High With Gucci,” shown in the brand’s stores worldwide, and the artist also created “Rohan Kishibe Goes to Gucci,” a special story for Japanese glossy Spur. Illustrations from these works will now be on display in Florence alongside pieces from Araki’s popular “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.”

“The opportunity to hold an exhibition of my works in Florence, arguably the world’s center of art, is the greatest honor of my life,” said Araki. “I hope that everyone in Europe can enjoy the exhibition."
