For those of us who can’t afford the flight to Italy, pour your self a little glass of vino and look at these images from the Fendi x Guiseppe Penone Exhibition in Rome.

Open through to mid-July of this year, the Palazzo della Cività Italiana have announced a collaborative exhibit between the fashion house Fendi and contemporary Italian artist Giuseppe Penone.

Entitled Matrice, the free-to-the-public exhibition merges innovation, tradition, craftsmanship and creativity through sculptures that draw upon nature, using materials such as wood, wax, leather, marble and bronze to explore themes of ecology and conservation.
