Abstract [en]

“Made in Italy” is a phenomenon widely researched in economic, historical and cultural studies (including fashion studies). The research about this topic mostly refers to the fast economic development in post-WWII Italy, in which fashion played a major role. My thesis, however, analyzes the “Made in Italy” concept in contemporary Italian fashion, which I refer to as “Made in Italy 2.0.” In order to understand how Italian style can be characterized today, I conducted interviews in five design schools in Italy located in the different fashion cities of the country: IED and Politecnico (Milan), IUAV (Venice), Polimoda and IED (Florence). I then analyzed my collected data and compared it to the characteristics of the “Made in Italy” fashion of the second half of the twentieth century discussed by various scholars, thus discovering what are the truly contemporary features of Italian fashion.
