The Pitti Box is a tribute to the common character of Pitts’s trade-shows: to be a Surprise Box, extraordinary tin-containers of ideas and innovations to open and switch from season to season, to tell the newest vibrations of fashion and lifestyle. Starting with the INFINITY BOX, with its special selection of videos with famous characters from the children’s world, from cartoons to cinema, and drawings by international illustrators of the Bologna Children's Book Fair; the PARK BOX, arena dedicated to sharing food, ideas and relaxing moments; the SHOW BOX, a container for a series of presentations, videos and images of the most important magazines and photographers of childrenswear, and an original photographic set at the same time; then a series of functional and fun boxes such as RECHARGE and SILENCE BOX; and also the path through the big images of the exhibition OUT OF THE BOX produced by REDA, a tribute to nature and at the same time a message linked to global sustainability.

The legendary Barbie Doll celebrated her birthday at Pitti Bimbo no.88 – Fortezza da Basso, January 17-19, 2019 . Since she first came into being, Barbie has played multiple roles, while undertaking more than 200 different careers. Ever-evolving and always up-to-date, thanks to the power of her outfits, she has shown it’s possible to not only be a princess, but also a career woman, and pass from sportswear to 12 cm-high heels without losing any allure. In her, girls can see whatever they might desire and, by using their imaginations, their self-awareness increases alongside the goals they would like to achieve.
