Kiton jackets ready to try on in the exhibition honoring Ciro Paone.
FLORENCE, Italy — The fashion crowd flocked to the Palazzo Gerini here on Tuesday night for the opening of an intimate and playful exhibition organized by Pitti Immagine in honor of the life and career of Kiton founder Ciro Paone.
Curator Angelo Flaccavento said he set out to create a portrait of the values that Paone stands for. “Ciro is the patron saint of Neapolitan tailoring in the sense that he gathered all of the tailors in the Naples area and created this whole myth; it was an art in danger of disappearing completely,” he said during a preview of the exhibit, titled “Two or Three Things I Know About Ciro.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
