When you were a kid in your world of games , you would have never thought that one day there would be an exhibition dedicated to Barbie ? That’s right , Barbie with whom you have played all your days. That day has arrived . In Rome , precisely at the Vittoriano you can admire the entire collections of this doll , which now has becae an Icon! Here you can find all the information about it .
In the exhibition, which lasts until 10.30.16 , produced by Arthemisia Group and 24 ORE Cultura – Gruppo 24 ORE in collaboration with Mattel , curated by Massimiliano Capella , has been enriched by new loans from the Barbie Fashionista series, including the Curvy models , Tall and Petit , which reproduce the different female body types , and wedding dolls of the English Royal Couple William and Catherine .
Barbie was able to demolish linguistic, cultural, social , anthropological frontiers . The exhibition is presented as a real world of women , all pink like a marshmallow !
The fair is divided into decades , from the 50s to the present day . It is very interesting to see how this icon has evolved through the years , feeling the social influences , cultural and fashion. Think that the first Barbie was sold only $ 1 50!
Barbie has had the privilege to resist the passing of the years and across eras and distant lands , representing over 50 different nationalities , and thus reinforcing its identity as a global imaginary mirror.
From the day when she made her debut at the New York International Toy Fair , exactly March 9, 1959 , Barbie has undertaken thousands of different professions . She went to the moon , he has become UNICEF ambassador and has worn clothes for a billion 980 million meters of cloth .
Barbie is naturally charm, beauty and especially fashion !
In 2014 the parade of Moschino has been inspired by Barbie during the Milan fashion week .
The icon is behind the times , as seen in the new collections 2016 !
In the past we had only a certain type of Barbie , slender blonde with perfect measurements . Now , in 2016 they created different types , reproducing the different female body types .
