Audrey Hepburn

The Book : Audrey in Rome

An exibition and tribute to the unforgettable Audrey Hepburn: unpublished shots, videos and personal belongings from one of our icons of the 1950s who lived in Rome for almost 30 years. For this exibition at the Museum dell’Ara Pacis in Rome, Italy, I curated the personal effects (wardrobe, accessories, luggage) from the late actress’ archives and selected the pieces to be displayed.

I extensively researched the designers and fashion houses of provenance for many unseen garments of Hepburns’ archives, and organized a visual itinerary at the Museum in which every fashion piece was displayed.
At the same time I co-wrote a book “Audrey in Rome” in which material from the same show was published and further examined.

Audrey In Rome


During the twenty years that she lived in Rome, Audrey Hepburn—legendary actress, fashion icon, and humanitarian—was the epitome of chic European style, from her little black dresses to her ballet flats. Her partnership with designer Hubert de Givenchy resulted in some of the most memorable and timeless looks on film.

Audrey in Rome is a gorgeous coffee table book that includes almost 200 candid photographs of the movie star--many of which have never been published before. These rare snapshots give us glimpses into the everyday life of the gamine star of such classic films as Roman Holiday, Breakfast at Tiffany’sSabrina.

Edited by her son, Luca Dotti, and Ludovica Damiani, film and theater writer and producer, and with text by fashion director and stylist Sciascia Gambaccini, Audrey in Rome is as personal as having Audrey Hepburn's family scrapbook in your hands.


Durante i venti anni che ha vissuto a Roma, l'attrice Audrey Hepburn-mitico, icona della moda, e umanitaria, è stato l'epitome di stile europeo chic, dai suoi abitini neri alle sue ballerine. La sua collaborazione con il designer Hubert de Givenchy ha portato in alcuni dei look più memorabili e senza tempo su pellicola.

Audrey a Roma è un coffee table book splendido che comprende quasi 200 fotografie candid della star del cinema - molte delle quali non sono mai stati pubblicati prima. Queste istantanee rari ci danno scorci nella vita di tutti i giorni della stella gamine di film classici come Vacanze romane, Colazione da Tiffany, Sabrina.

A cura di suo figlio, Luca Dotti, e Ludovica Damiani, cinema e teatro sceneggiatore e produttore, e con testi di fashion director e stylist Sciascia Gambaccini, Audrey a Roma è così personale come avere l'album di famiglia di Audrey Hepburn nelle vostre mani.
