A copy of 'Gardens of Silk' by Giuliana Atlea that I picked up from the Gucci Museum in Florence narrates the tale behind their most signature scarf -- Flora. Intended for the iconic Grace Kelly, Rodolfo Gucci entrusted artist Vittorio Accornero who created a dazzling scarf depicting flowers that bloomed in all Florentine seasons.
