From Vigevano to Parabiago, till Marche Region

[On the cover: Amanda, the winner shoes]

After Vigevano, where it opened on the 20th of November and closed at the and of January, the exhibition has now landed in Parabiago where it will end on the 1st of April, to then go on to the Marche region. The exhibition was born with the intention of commemorating violence against women, a real social emergency, which has a universally recognised symbol in red shoes, which gave the title to the exhibition itself: “Red Shoes, when design becomes a symbol”. At the end of the Vigevano museum tour, a QR code invited the public to vote on their favourite piece of footwear on social media and the most voted for one is destined to remain on permanent display at the Footwear Museum. On the 5th of March, as a corollary to a series of events at the end of this initiative in Vigevano to reaffirm the commitment to combat violence against women 365 days a year, the Amanda shoe, by Arturo Gorlini, was declared the winner, having received the greatest number of likes on Facebook.
