Elegant 1800

I just come back from Rovigo, a city 1/2 hour from Padua, where I saw a wonderful exhibition called "L'ottocento elegante" - The elegant 1800.

It was a display of (mainly) feminine portraits with many references to Moroccan and Japanese influences typical of that period.

Being addicted to period costumes, I really enjoyed it.

A good choice of paintings, divided into different themes, one for each room.

It was a pity I couldn't see another exhibition in a city nearby, with an amazing display of Fortuny's clothes.
I hope I'll manage to go before moving to Milan.
