What is ITS Arcademy
ITS Arcademy is an exhibition space, a creative archive and a learning centre. 1400 square meters open to all, to cultivate creativity, be inspired and experiment.
Built from ITS Contest, an international festival for young designers launched in 2002. ITS Foundation had the foresightedness to preserve a collection piece of each finalist.
A growing cultural and social resource that recounts the evolution of contemporary fashion through the first creations of designers who went on to re-shape the fashion industry.
ITS Arcademy photo identity
The photographic identity of ITS Arcademy was developed by photographer Massimo Gardone.
"To capture the essence and to interpret artistic projects so full of meaning and detail, the only possible approach was to work by subtraction. Stripping the work, to get to the heart of what makes it unique. The starting point was the body, to be modeled as a font, shooting it against the light. Silhouettes to be cut out and placed on a white background. The nuances of light enhance the texture of the materials, the characters become abstract in a metaphysical landscape. A journey to capture the soul of the ITS archive.”
