All Bidinis Bags products reflect the history, the traditions, and the influences of a country that for over 2000 years embodies a philosophy of comfort and sophistication, at home, in the streets, at the beach, at a party, at the theatre, at the church.
It's worldwide known as Made in Italy but for us Italians it runs deeper.
It talks about the frescos decorated villas of Pompei, of Carpe Diem, of the refined products of the Silk Road reaching the epicentre of the empire, of the private paintings of the renaissance capturing the garments, the accessories, the interiors, the naked body, the marvel of nature.
It's about the rich and diverse history of cities which represent a universe apart from anything else in existence before and after they reached their political, financial and social peak.
Cities like Florence and the Medici, Palermo and the Arabs, Naples and the Spanish, Rome and the Popes, Genoa and the Doria, Venice and the Doges, Milan and the Sforza, Turin and the Agnelli.
And that just to walk on the beaten track.
It talks about the lives of the people who shared their time with Caesar, Dante, Marco Polo, Leonardo da Vinci, Lucrezia Borgia, Macchiavelli, Cristoforo Colombo, Michelangelo, Tintoretto, Stradivari, Vivaldi, Palladio, Paganini, Casanova, Rossini, Verdi, Puccini, De Chirico, Enzo Ferrari, Luchino Visconti, Fellini, Gianni Versace.
And that just to name a few.
Today this melange of cultural elegance and self-confidence still lives on uninterrupted, unhindered by invasions, wars, economic turmoil, political upheaval and by the grinder of time that saw the raise and fall of emperors, kings, popes, dictators, dukes, marques, counts, barons and a plethora of real and made up aristocrats.
To this day in Italy from North to South for every household name in the fashion world, you have a small intellectually refined army of unknown designers.
These geniuses in the shadow work hand in hand with the best master craftsmen waiting to achieve stardom and redefining fashion on a global scale season after season.
