Titian’s La Bella: a Reinassance dress. The new tailoring course at Spazio Nota

From 16 to 20 March 2020 Spazio NOTE will host the new tailoring course aimed, on the one hand, at recovering the original dress of the Historical Procession of the Florentine Republic (already depicted by Titian in the famous painting La Bella exhibited at the Palatina Gallery of Palazzo Pitti in Florence) and, on the other hand, at creating a new one for the public exits of the Procession. Free of charge thanks to the support of Fondazione CR Firenze, the lectures given by Vittoria Valzania and Anna Rodriguez are in three languages: Italian, English and Spanish. Once the dress has been recovered, it will be put into a museum inside the Palagio di Parte Guelfa while the new one will be on display for the first time publicly on the occasion of the Scoppio del Carro on Easter Sunday. Registration by 9 March 2020 |
