The Journées Particulières of the LVMH group

In Italy, the 14 places (of which 6 unprecedented) opened to the public by 11 Houses are representative of the diversity of manufacturing and know-how. Visitors will be able to discover the story behind the creation of Berluti’s leather footwear and accessories in its factory in Ferrara, the savoir-faire of great fashion Houses such as Fendi and Emilio Pucci, or of Acqua di Parma’s perfumes, or even visit the Louis Vuitton shoe manufacture in Fiesso d'Artico as well as the wool-spinning mill of Roccapietra, where Loro Piana creates the finest of cashmeres.
