Unseen photographs of MARILYN MONROE

The Salvatore Ferragamo Museum pays homage to Marilyn Monroe by releasing a book of  iconic and previously unseen photographs of the sex symbol. The book’s title is “Marilyn” and it is expected to hit the shelves today.

The Florentine Museum also dedicates a major exhibition to Monroe’s 50th anniversary of death with 50 of her outfits on display.

In the post-war period Salvatore Ferragamo became a symbol of Italy’s reconstruction, through design and production. His inventions – the metal-reinforced stiletto heels made famous by Marilyn Monroe, gold sandals, and the invisible sandals with uppers made from nylon thread – won Ferragamo the prestigious ‘Neiman Marcus Award’, the Oscar of the fashion world, awarded for the first time to a footwear designer.

The shoes of Marilyn Monroe in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” are also displayed at the Salvatore Ferragamo museum in Florence, Italy.
