Re-creating a slice of Paris

Every December since 2002, Lagerfeld has chosen one city to present a Metiers d'Art show and celebrate this craftsmanship.

It is also a way to showcase the specialty couture ateliers that Chanel owns.

Last December, Lagerfeld chose Cinecitta Theatre No 5 in Rome for his show.

Cinecitta Theatre No 5 is the studio where Federico Fellini filmed his 1960s masterpieces La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2 and Cassanova.

Cinecitta was also home to the popular movie Roman Holiday.
