Il Bisonte began production in 1970 in Pontassieve on the banks of the Arno river, just a few minutes from Florence. Pontassieve is a unique place steeped in centuries of culture, awareness, and the know-how to make beautiful, quality, stylish products.
The new FW 2020/21 collection presented in Palazzo Corsini, Il Bisonte’s historic headquarters in Florence, is a tribute to the first fifty years of the brand’s history, its inexhaustible creativity and the excellence of its production district located just 30Km away.
During early twentieth century Russia an unconventional woman dominates the art scene; she’s a bridge between East and West, between icons of the Russian tradition and European avant-gardes: Natalia Goncharova, who lived a nonconformist life between Moscow and Paris.
In 2008 the partnership between Palazzo Strozzi and Il Bisonte began and grew out of the friendship between James Bradburne (then director of the Foundation) and Wanny Di Filippo, founder and brand ambassador.
