Entitled Fendi Renaissance – Anima Mundi, the unique performance was filmed and streamed from the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, Fendi’s Roman home, in a bid to uplift spirits with a positive message of rebirth through art, fashion and music following the peak of the coronavirus outbreak. Celebrated on the day of the summer solstice, the performance symbolises the desire to restart, reunite and rejoin.

Regarded as one of the most celebrated classical compositions of all time, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons concerto is a breathtakingly beautiful piece of music that never fails to move the soul. The symphonic music, whose peculiarity lies in the highest quality of sound, discovers its iconographic expression through Fendi‘s Couture dresses, which visually personify the narrative of Vivaldi’s EstateTo mark the occasion, Anna Tifu sports three different dresses from Fendi‘s Couture Collection.
