Find us in via Montenapoleone 21, Milan
The sophisticated Fabio Gavazzi showroom is located inside a prestigious historic building on via Montenapoleone, one of the most upscale shopping streets in international fashion. Here, enveloped in a suspended in time atmosphere, between original architectural elements and 19th-century frescoes, we display the Fabio Gavazzi collections, welcome customers to place orders, and customize every creation with attention to the smallest detail.
In the 19th century, they used to paint the ceilings of palaces with scenes that could bring good luck to the owners. The frescoes, preserved in our showroom, were executed in the early 1800s for the Gavazzi family, related to the Specks, who owned the Austro-Hungarian postal service and – since the 1600s – the renowned silk industrial complex of Valmadrera, which was considered the “Fiat” of the time for its size and importance.
The frescoes, which have a romantic flavor, depict Enlightenment symbols, typical of the Restoration period in Lombardy.
The ceiling in the first room shows Faith on the left side (woman with the cross), while below is Science (woman with the compass), and in the center is Prudence, who carries “knowledge” (the book) and “good command” (the scepter).
The second painting portrays a “familia” of the Gavazzis’ house, probably the house-owner turning to Truth (“graduate” woman) to symbolize the value of family. In the same scene we can see a Cupid pushing Time away and holding an hourglass and a sickle, as there is no place for him in the family’s Empyrean.
