WHEN IN ROME: The Louis Vuitton Maison slated to open in Rome later this month will be located in a historic venue dedicated to cinema for almost a century. The sprawling boutique will come complete with a screening room — and the movie theme doesn’t stop there. The French leather goods giant commissioned a documentary dedicated to the craftsmen of Italian film. What’s more, Vuitton has concluded a three-year partnership with famous film school Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia (or Italian National film school). Vuitton plans to unveil details of the projects at a press conference in Rome on Jan. 18.
