More than forty shots of photographers, such as BERT STERN, GEORGE BARRIS, ANDRE 'DE DIENES, MILTON H. GREENE, celebrate the never forgotten Marilyn Monroe, pop icon, sensual woman and eternal actress. An exhibition of archives to rediscover, through significant stages of his career, the legendary life of American diva.

As in one of the many Hollywood comedies she plays but without a happy ending, the show starts at the beginning as a model with the real name "Norma Jeane" when, still unknown, crossed America on the road with photographer André De Dienes, completing Marilyn Monroe metamorphosis and her world fame.

Also shown are eight intimate and provocative pictures stolen by Bert Stern in the famous "The Last Sitting" of 1962, the year when the semen blonde appears human and, for the first time, deadly.
Also present was the famous nude (published on the Golden Dream Calendar in 1953 and the first issue of Playboy later) immortalized by Tom Kelley depicting a young and still unknown Marilyn languidly lying on a cloth of red velvet.

At the end of the exhibition and Marilyn Monroe's troubled life, the photographic series of the funeral of the American American Diva by Gene Anthony, one of the few photographers admitted that fateful August 8, 1962, when the most shining star of Hollywood died.

Shortly after the actress' death, the photographer George Barris, the last to have her captured with his lens, he told the Daily Mirror: "The champagne was a symbol for her. Each time he drank a glass, he said to himself, “I toast to the future." The champagne girl did not drink anything else. Here's what animated Marilyn in his last nine weeks, before he died: the taste of life."

"My Marilyn" is the corpus of a private collection born of the passion of Stefano Aleotti, founder of Ruote da Sogno, for a beautiful icon of style destined to last in time.
