United States – Chicago, Dressing the Past: Outfits, Dreams and Memories of a 20th Century Italian Writer

The Italian Cultural Institute in Chicago focused on the original connection between fashion and literature in presenting the book Album di vestiti (“Dress Album”), written by Paola Masino at the end of the ‘50s and remained unpublished until 2015. The editor, Marinella Mascia Galateria, from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, will illustrate the memories of this extraordinary writer who, also thanks to her friendship with Massimo Bontempelli and Luigi Pirandello, was an eye-witness of the era of the glamourous “divas” of the roaring 1920s and 1930s. The exhibition will display sketches drawn from the novel and will guide visitors through the magic and visionary world of Paola Masino.
