“Barbie - The icon” Exhibition In Milan

Since the American toy-company Mattel manufactured the first Barbie doll in 1959, she has become part of popular culture, always evolving and reflecting her times, making her a symbol of the style of every period she has experienced. It is for this reason that the Museo delle Culture in Milan has chosen to dedicate an exhibition to her called “Barbie – The Icon“.

The exhibition for kids and adultswill tell the story of the incredible life of a doll that has interpreted the aesthetic and cultural transformations of society for more than half a century; but – unlike the other myths of contemporaneity, worn out by the passing of time – this doll has had the privilege of being timeless and has crossed distant eras and lands, representing some 50 different nationalities, and bolstering her identity as a mirror for the global imagination.
