MICOL FONTANA FOUNDATION

The Micol Fontana Foundation is a non-profit association established in 1994 and declared an “Archive of considerable historical interest” by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage. With the Foundation that bears her name, Micol Fontana carried out a very beloved project, pursued with great determination, in homage to a life entirely dedicated to the world of Fashion with her sisters Zoe and Giovanna.

A great heritage left as a legacy by the Atelier of the Sorelle Fontana, consisting of wearing apparel, sketches, a library, a newspaper archive, a photographic collection, embroidery and accessories, is preserved in the Archive of the Foundation as a memory of the past, put at the service of future generations through the organization of visits, seminars, exhibitions and cultural meetings.
