The House is partner of the annual festival that celebrates women’s contributions to the progress of humanity.
Promoting and encouraging the participation of women in a world where equal opportunities recognize their contribution as a stimulus to the progress of humanity: these values strongly speak to the narrative of Gucci and are central themes of Eredità delle Donne. Now in its fourth edition, the Florence-based festival dedicated to women’s contributions to the progress of humanity grows stronger each year with the involvement of scientists, economists, writers, actors, urban planners, environmentalists, activists, politicians, and businesswomen.
Gucci has long been involved in fostering an equitable and inclusive culture, including empowering women. It has been a partner since the festival’s first year, a clear sign of the company’s commitment to working toward transformative change—for both people and the planet.
Curated by Serena Dandini as artistic director, the fourth edition of the festival, whose theme was ‘Next Generation Women, was held from October 22 to 24, 2021, at the former Manifattura Tabacchi in Florence as well as online. For the opening event, Gucci opened the doors of the Gucci Garden to host a talk between Italian writer Chiara Valerio and Spanish philosopher and writer Paul B. Preciado.
Through this partnership with the festival, Gucci brought visibility to the topic of gender equality and working toward an inclusive model for future generations of women in Florence, the birthplace of the House in a fitting collaboration for the House’s centennial.
