Gucci news



Gucci opened its first museum in a Florentine palazzo, 90 years after its founder started a family leather goods business inspired by English aristocrats. 

Stars of the fashion world came out to celebrate the museum’s opening at a lavish ceremony on Monday September 26, 2011 in Florence’s treasured Piazza della Signoria, home to the 14th-century Palazzo della Mercanzia that houses Gucci’s new exhibit. 

Inside the palazzo, Gucci’s famed “bamboo” handbags owned by fashion idols Jackie Onassis and Sofia Loren are on permanent display for the first time and the basement houses the Gucci archive, an immense collection of ready-to-wear, accessories and photographs.
