The first section picks out the key figures of Italian film, from the neorealists like Vittorio De Sica and Luchino Visconti, through the auteurs of Federico Fellini, Michelangelo Antonioni and Pier Paolo Pasolini, and on to Il divo, Gomorra and the other key works of contemporary Italian film.

Italian fashion is given the same treatment in section two; the history, contemporary importance and key figures are all explored.
