“Flavio Lucchini is a versatile figure, inclined to move among different subjects with the capacity to combine talent scouting qualities and great editorial abilities,
ranging, in his career, from the creation of some of the most innovative Italian fashion magazines to the establishment of Superstudio in Milan, location of exchange and intersections of contemporary languages. It is thus well deserved the recognition that Triennale of Milan – whose mission is highlighting the highest expressions of the world of design and creativity – today gives to a protagonist of Italian and international fashion”.

Flavio Lucchini was the protagonist and anticipator of the editorial fashion culture of the 60’s/ 70’s/ 80’s who has over the last thirty years turned his creativity into art. 
After studying Architecture in Venice and Fine Arts at Accademia di Brera in Milan, Lucchini since an early age stands out for his innovative quality and the modernity of his graphic work. He successfully created the most important and innovative Italian fashion magazines; Amica, Vogue Italia, Lei/ Glamour, Moda, Donna, Mondo Uomo. He discovered new talents in photography, graphics, journalism and showcased Italian design and designers. In 1983 he founded Superstudio 13, the first center for photography and image, later adding Superstudio Piu, the comprehensive hub dedicated to fashion, art, design and communication. Since 1990, he dedicates himself exclusively to art, with the particular mission: removing from fashion the suspect of being ephemeral and making it eternal, exploring and researching through his Dress Art, the mystery of the women dress.
