La Divina Marchesa

Friday, November 7th, 2014


Sice the 4th of October, at Palazzo Fortuny, opened an exposition about a Lady, Marquis Luisa Casati Stampa. She has been the muse of many of the most important artists of the beginning of the 20th Century, including Gabriele D’Annunzio. Palazzo Fortuny was one of Luisa’s most loved places in Venice , house-atelier of the famous Mariano Fortuny. Guess why? Because, as every Diva, she loved his wonderful silk dress!!!

This is the very first exposition about this exstraodinary woman. A Diva who, whith the bizarre performance, dresses and make up, has been able to transform herself into a “living art opera”. A mith who still inspire artists from all over the world.
