The Splendor of the Renaissance on display in Belgrade

An Interesting Italian exhibition called “The Splendor of the Renaissance” is on display at the Museum of the City of Belgrade until 30th June.

After the great success that the exhibition, comprising of 30 pieces of clothing from the Renaissance and Baroque period, had in other cities around the world, it has now come to Belgrade where it will stay until 30th June.

The exhibition showcases the clothes and decorative pieces collected after years of research and thanks to contributions by many historians, illustrators, tailors, embroiderers and artisans. Unique for their beauty and exclusivity, the costumes represent master pieces of Italian tailoring and craft houses and clearly show the high level of Italian production of clothes and their design.

“The Splendor of the Renaissance” was created based on the study of Renaissance paintings. Thirty costumes are displayed on stands and next to them are the photographs of the Renaissance paintings that were the inspiration for the costumes.

The exhibition has been realized on the basis of the project created in Mantova. After first displays at the palaces of this city and a growing success with the audiences and media, the exhibition toured many Italian and European cities as well as North and South America and Asia, where it was displayed in more than 40 cities. The organizers of the exhibition are the association “Invito a Corte”, run by Fausto Fornasari and The Italian Cultural Institute in Belgrade.

The Museum of the City of Belgrade is open every day from 11:00 to 19:00 except on Mondays.
