The Marilyn connection
Although Salvatore and Marilyn Monroe never met, she was a great fan of his work. It was when he was based in Florence and exporting to the US that their connection began, one that included the heels worn in The Seven Year Itch. Years later, more than 40 pairs of the star’s Ferragamo shoes were auctioned after her death. The company bought the collection, which is now housed in its archives.
