Even this year Sanremo (the most important Italian music festival) has come to an end. From February 12th, the 63rd edition glued an average of 11,936,000 viewers to their tv-screens for five evenings, proving that still exist Italian “thinking people”.
Yes, I mean intelligent and reasonable people because this was a very unusual festival, influenced by cultural, political and social references, and characterized by an informal and humorous show’s host, without the typical platitudes of the national networks.

In this brief post I’d like to talk about the fashion we saw on stage, without any kind of chart, but with just a simple applaud to the comedy actress and presenter Luciana Littizzetto, who chose to wear clothes made by emerging or less known Italian fashion designers, symbols of that excellent “Made in Italy” niche that the whole world envies.
The names of the five selected designers were: Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi, from the Aquilano.Rimondi brand; Gabriele Colangelo; Cristina Tardito from Kristina Ti brand; Albino by Albino D’Amato and finally Gianluca Capannolo.
We must admit that unfortunately not all the outfits look at their best on the petite silhouette of Luciana Littizzetto, but two outfits have stood out for their elegance and proportions:

the second outfit worn in the first evening made by Aquilano.Rimondi, with a black V-neck top ending in an emerald green skirt, studded with precious applications highlighting the waistline;

and the third total black outfit of the second evening, by Gianluca Capannolo (former creative director of Krizia) who played with transparencies on a deep V-neck, with a long high waisted skirt with a golden belt.

The sore points, according to many of the detractors of the festival, were the maxi-heeled platform shoes, made to measure by Riccardo Rizieri Broglia, the thirty-year-old designer who after the experience in the footwear division at Marni, founded his namesake brand in 2008. The shoes should have been used without stockings, to enhance the typically Italian craftsmanship which fortunately is recovering its leading worldwide role thanks to the new generations of designers and craftsmen.
