Valentino is an Italian fashion designer and founder of the Valentino brand and company. Throughout the 1970s Valentino spent considerable time in New York City, where his presence was embraced by society personalities such as Vogue's editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland and the art icon Andy Warhol.
1990 marked the opening of the Accademia Valentino, designed by architect Tommaso Ziffer, a cultural space located near Valentino's atelier in Rome, for the presentation of art exhibitions. On 6 July 2006, France's President Chirac awarded Valentino the Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur and the Mayor of Rome, announced that the site of the Valentino Museum would be a building in via San Teodoro in Rome.
On 24 January 2008, Valentino was presented with the Medal of the City of Paris for his services to fashion in the city where he was educated. On 7 September 2011, he was presented with the sixth annual Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion from the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology at a benefit luncheon held at the David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center in New York City.
