FENDI Presents Anima Mundi

Thursday, June 25th, 2020

The unique event is the result of a collaboration between Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and FENDI

FENDI streamed a larger-than-life performance titled FENDI Renaissance – Anima Mundi on June 20 in collaboration with the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. This special event is a performance of Antonio Vivaldi’s “Estate” from “The Four Seasons” executed by the orchestra of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and star violinist Anna Tifu, who was dressed in three different FENDI Couture looks.

Anima Mundi represents the unifying principle from which each organism takes shape, articulating and differentiating itself through its individual specifications, to then unify under a Universal Soul. The performance is executed following this concept, with the musicians first playing separately and then united by a special element: The Orchestra. It will be an “itinerant” performance in space and time – one of violinist Anna Tifu and of the orchestral professors. From the first movement, at dawn, on the steps of Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana and then under the arches, maintaining the social distance imposed by the events of recent weeks, the musicians finally rejoin at sunset on the rooftop of the “Square Colosseum” to tune up for the last movement of “Estate,” playing music together again after months of forced separation and celebrating together the warmth of music and summer.
