MILAN — Ferragamo Parfums’ new Acqua Essenziale men’s fragrance is sponsoring a design week project at the University of Milan. The installation, “Inversion,” by American architect Steven Holl, is part of the Hybrid Architecture & Design Exhibit, which opened April 8 and will run through Sunday.
Surrounded by the university’s old white columns and rusty brick archways, the installation is composed of six void-cut limestone blocks from Lecce, Apulia, resting alongside a shimmering pool of water. In an interview Friday, Ferragamo Parfums chief executive officer Luciano Bertinelli said the company was planning on upping its design week presence in the future.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
