The name “Palazzo Zileri” evokes an ancient building in the historic centre of Vicenza. Pal Zileri pursues its sartorial craftsmanship combined with a contemporary aesthetic.

Client: Pal Zileri, Vicenza (IT)
Project: S/S 2022 – ADV Campaign
Main responsibilities and activities I was in charge of:
Campaign creativity: concept development of ‘Under the eye of paparazzi’. This is the story that inspired the brand Spring/Summer 2022 campaign, capturing #effortless moments: the behind of the scene of the iconic imagery associated with Venice Film Festival.
‘Since 1932, the first year of the Festival, icons and muses of international ‘cinema’, navigate the lagoon speeding on motorboats with everlasting charm. Passing through the Canal Grande or in front of Piazza San Marco, they go through a sort of imaginative and scenic “blue carpet” to the elegant boardwalk of Hotel Excelsior where they will be welcomed by other paparazzi, waiting to steal an iconic gesture, an everlasting pose.’
Art direction: responsible for directing the creative process, from the concept to the art direction of the shooting and ADV campaign. The creative idea was scaled on all the online and offline channels, introducing the new brand positioning and S/S collection.
Graphic design: graphic project and design of S/S 2021 catalogue and ADV layouts.
