Having studied Art and German at university, Francesca Tacconi initially intended to become an educator. However, after volunteering to work at Pitti Uomo as a result of her linguistic skills, she quickly decided that “this was my job.” Starting out as a seasonal volunteer, over the course of 25 years, Tacconi has built her career to now oversee all press and special projects relating to Pitti Immagine, the parent company which oversees not only Pitti Uomo but also Pitti Bimbo, its childrenswear edition, Taste, its culinary and food fair, and Pitti Fraganze, which is dedicated to luxury fragrance and beauty brands.
