The show

Far from being superfluous, capable of immediately revealing not only the social class to which they belong, but also the personality of those who wore them. The Coronini collections, linked to the vicissitudes of an ancient aristocratic family, offers a privileged observatory from a point of view to discover, also with the support of paintings and photos, how each era has its "style icons", with its own rules and ceremonials that govern the use and conditioning of the habits of everyday life. The eighteenth century, for example, was the century of the fan, the nineteenth century saw the triumph of the hat, while the handbag, which is today among the most trendy accessories, became indispensable only in the twentieth century. Alongside them, many other objects, sometimes a little demodé, such as walking sticks, handkerchiefs, lace, shawls and snuffboxes, are trying to reveal the taste and style of the last descendants of the Coronini counts, in a suggestive journey back in time, to the discovery of epochs in which the ability to work is indispensable to be considered the true ladies of the perfect gentlemen.
