When Barbie Went to Bologna

On 1 July 2016 I took time out of Il Cinema Ritrovato film festival in Bologna to take in an amazing exhibition of Barbie dolls. Little did I know that eight years later the whole world would be excitedly waiting for Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie. Only three weeks to go!

In the meantime enjoy some snaps from Barbie, The Icon at the Palazzo Albergatti.
