Those with a love of Italian fashion and warm winters should head to Florida in February for the opening of the "Bellissima: Italy and High Fashion 1945 – 1968" exhibition at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale. The exhibition will examine the post-war period that led to Italy's "Alta Moda" (high fashion), which included designers such as Emilio Schuberth, Sorelle Fontana, Germana Marucelli, Mila Schön, Valentino, Simonetta, Roberto Capucci, Fernanda Gattinoni, Fendi, Renato Balestra, Biki, Irene Galitzine, Emilio Pucci and Fausto Sarli.

Bellissima was conceived by the National Museum of the XXI Century Arts (MAXXI) in Rome and is curated by Maria Luisa Frisa, critic, fashion curator and professor at IUAV University of Venice; Anna Mattirolo, MAXXI arte director; and Stefano Tonchi, Editor-in-Chief of W magazine. The exhibition is presented by Bulgari with additional support provided by the Consulate General of Italy in Miami, Italian Trade Commission, Vontobel Swiss Wealth Advisors AG, Funding Arts Broward, Condé Nast and La Rosa mannequins.
