Giorgio Armani Introduces Filmmaking Workshop

ARMANI’S MOVIELAND: Giorgio Armani is taking his lifelong passion for cinema one step further. The Italian designer is setting up Armani/Laboratorio, an intensive filmmaking workshop offered free of charge, which will allow participants to produce a short film. The workshop will be held in January at the designer’s Silos space. Subjects include directing, screenwriting, set design, photography, editing, costumes, makeup and hair styling.
‘This new project develops further my support of new-generation talents, which began a few years ago,” said Armani. “I like the idea of a workshop that teaches young filmmaking students practical skills, also thanks to the help of friends who will mentor participants in each discipline. Handing down knowledge is essential, and it’s my mission.”
Armani/Laboratorio comprises eight training modules, one for each discipline, taught by top professionals in the industry. The workshop is supported by a number of leading figures close to the designer, eight of whom will have a mentoring role as experts. Their names are not confirmed yet, but for the time being there are a number of friends of the house that have agreed to support the project. In addition to Academy Award winner Giuseppe Tornatore, they are Gabriele Muccino, Maria Sole Tognazzi, Michele Placido,
