2-a-0-fondaco-courtyard-matteo-de-fina-dfs-1T Fondaco dei Tedeschi by DFS, the lifestyle department store in the heart of Venice, in collaboration with the Villa Foscarini Rossi Shoe Museum, presents “I’m not Cinderella, I just love shoes”: a journey through the more recent history of women’s shoes portrayed through four portraits of unusual women. Women who choose to wear bold, eccentric, sophisticated shoes: high heel shoes have always been the symbol of femininity and it is from the pleasure of liking themselves and being liked by others that their close bond with those who wear them is born. eleganza-equilibrata_christian-dior_1967_00005Forty-odd models of high heel shoes from the Villa Foscarini Rossi Shoe Museum are on display, from the sixties to these days. The Shoe Museum has a collection of more than 1500 luxury women’s shoes. Produced by the shoe factory Rossimoda in more than seventy years of activity, they are the result of its collaboration with the most important fashion brands in the international panorama.  The selection of the curators of the exhibition wanted to portray four possible psychological profiles of women. Among the brand on display are, just to mention a few, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Emilio Pucci, Fendi, Nicholas Kirkwood, Kenzo, Loewe and Celine.
