Italian stories in eight words
Aria d'Italia is an original Tod's project celebrating the contemporary Italian lifestyle and its inherent values: a talent and passion for quality in every aspect of life, from culinary delights to art, from the joy of sharing to cherishing traditions. Through eight keywords, a series of personal and professional stories are told by artists, entrepreneurs, and artisans, each representing in their own way the essence of Italian identity. Chapter after chapter, Aria d'Italia becomes an illustrated journey, the voices of a new generation, brimming with creativity, able to reinvent our country's heritage through entrepreneurial and unconventional artistic ideas.
In September 2022, Aria d'Italia's words and images will come together in a book published in collaboration with Rizzoli International Publications.
