The exhibition Barbie – The Icon at MUDEC in Milan focuses on the cultural, anthropological, social, fashion and artistic aspects of Barbie the fashion doll.

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.

The exhibition is divided into seven sections, which include objects, images, videos and ideas on the only doll that has become a “living legend”.
