The activity of the most glorious Italian costume tailoring company of our time, founded by Umberto Tirelli in 1964.


ISBN: 9788857226880 Category:

Silvia d’Amico, Caterina d’Amico, Dino Trappetti


The book presents a portrait of Tirelli with the history of his apprenticeship and his passion not only for the painstaking reproduction of ancient garments and accessories but also for building up a priceless collection of tens of thousands of original items of clothing. A long chapter presents testimonials from faithful customers including the most illustrious Italian and foreign costume designers, winners of countless Oscars, some of whom have been with Tirelli from the outset. The rich array of illustrations – comprising sketches, photographs of finished costumes and scenes from plays and films – spans five decades of inventions and successes, and the work ends with a catalogue raisonné of the company’s creations for theater, opera, cinema, and television.
