Multimedia designer Federico Mauro is well-known for his projects that center around famous items in popular culture. 'Famous Hats' is another such project that showcases world renowned hats from movies, literature, TV and history.

Federico Mauro's 'Famous' series is a personal project for the artist. Due to the many copyrights attached to these iconic objects, Mauro is not allowed to profit from his works as he could open himself up to a lawsuit. Undeterred Mauro has continued his projects with 'Famous Blades,' 'Famous Guns' and now 'Famous Hats,' proving that this is out of passion and not profit and the passion can be seen in his work.

'Famous Hats' includes such notable hats as Abe Lincoln's, Indiana Jones' and Willy Wonka's, though they're are labelled, these hats are so iconic they're instantly recognizable.
