Pitti Immagine is a collection of fashion industry events in Italy.[1]

Pitti Immagine Uomo[edit]

Pitti Uomo (in English, "Pitti Men"), is one of the world’s most important platforms for men’s clothing and accessory collections, and for launching new projects in men’s fashion. It's held twice yearly in Florence, at the Fortezza da Basso.[2]

The first edition of Pitti Uomo was held in Florence in September 1972.[3] The exhibition provided a platform for raising the profile of Italian designers and now has achieved international stature as a leading fashion fair. Pitti Uomo is credited with making dandyism acceptable to a wider audience.[4] The 88th edition of Pitti Uomo (Pitti 88) in June 2015 hosted 30,000 visitors in total.[5] The Pitti Immagine Uomo 2015 Award went to Lardini, and the Pitti Immagine Career Award was awarded to Nino Cerruti.[5] Pitti Immagine Uomo 89 was held 12–15 January 2016 with 1,219 exhibitors.[6] Pitti Uomo 90 will be held in Florence 14–17 June 2016.[7]
