The project, inspired by the “Forever Now” philosophy of creative director Frida Giannini, becomes global three years after the opening of the Gucci Museum
With the launch of the new site guccimuseo.com, the Florentine Maison makes its historical and artistic heritage accessible always and to everyone.
The virtual experience starts with a simple click, on PCs, tablets and smartphones.
There are three sections. The Archive, where you can explore permanent exhibitions of the Gucci archive and temporary exhibitions of the past, interact with photos of archival items, watch videos on iconic models of Gucci and 360-degree images of the rooms. In Gucci and art you’ll find all contemporary art exhibitions (past and present). And in the last section, The Museum, practical information on the Icon Store (dedicated to the brand’s iconic products), the Gift Shop and the Bookstore. The site is integrated with the major social channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,Pinterest and YouTube ) to share the contents and the experience, and translated into eightlanguages (just like gucci.com).
It is located in Florence’s Piazza della Signoria. In the sumptuous vaults of the ancient Mercanzia Palace, in the bright of the Gucci Cafe and Restaurant, you can enjoy the best of Tuscan cuisine or have a cup of good coffee.
