Naná Cecchi


Naná Cecchi
Set and costume designer
Italian costume designer Naná Cecchi can safely be described as a living legend, and has long been referred to as “the queen of costumes” in international theatrical circles. Her teachers were Romolo Valli, Giorgio De Lullo and Luchino Visconti, whose assistant she worked as in staging Mozart's opera Così fan tutte. Equally at home in the genres of film, theatre and opera, she regularly does design work for Italy's leading opera houses. She is also credited on numerous film productions, having worked with Bertolucci as well as being invited to join Hollywood super-productions, designing costumes for films like First Knight and Ladyhawke, in which she devised the dress of such stars as Sean Connery, Richard Gere, Michelle Pfeiffer, Julia Ormond, Alfred Molina and Rutger Hauer.
