Take a Tour of Fendi's Headquarters at Rome's Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana

A majestic, architectural triumph built in the 1930s.

Located in the ancient city of Rome, the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana is a six-story architectural triumph constructed during the 1930s. The building had been vacated for 72 years until 2015, when Fendi announced the location as its headquarters. In a recent video interview with the New York Times, Silvia Fendi — Fendi’s Creative Director of Accessories and Men’s — recounts the history of the majestic building, as well as the brand’s development over the years. In particular, she touches on the company’s long-term relationship with designer Karl Lagerfeld. Watch the video below to learn more.
