“In celebration of iconic eyewear and film, Italian eyewear legend Persol has unveiled the first of three installments in its PERSOL MAGNIFICENT OBSESSIONS: 30 Stories of Craftsmanship in Film exhibition series,”  The exhibition ran from June 17-19, 2011 at Center 548 in New York City, celebrating the stories of obsessive craftsmanship behind cinema’s most iconic on-screen moments. The logic of the exhibition is simple,  “just as it takes 30 manual steps to create the perfect pair of Persol frames, MAGNIFICENT OBSESSIONS showcases how each instance of cinematic perfection takes hours, weeks or months of painstaking research and craftsmanship to develop and is truly a labor of love.”
