Blossoming into life, the new Gucci Bloom campaign is set in a garden of dreams at the revered La Scuarzuola, a mystical landmark found deep in Italy's Umbrian hills near Orvieto in Italy.
La Scuarzuola is a surrealist architectural compound built around an old Franciscan convent, designed by architect Tomaso Buzzi in the late 1950s with stairs and bridges that lead no where, this enchanting and mysterious place becomes the set of a campaign for the first time and is transformed to express a dream filled with flowers and plants.
