The exhibition "Fiori nel Vento" at Villa Monastero

From Saturday July 4th a new exhibition promoted by the Province of Lecco opens to visitors at Villa Monastero in Varenna.


The exhibition Fiori nel vento. Floral fans from the XIX century, organised by the curator of the House Museum Anna Ranzi, will be open to the public until Sunday September 27th. Visitors will have the opportunity to admire a series of fans dating back to the XIX century.


Fans have been a fundamental accessory of women fashion throughout European history, starting from the XV century, becoming an element of elegance and social status and real works of art thanks to the involvement of the most prestigious artists of the time.


The pieces on exhibition witness the transition from fans made of handpainted paper to those made of cloth with embroideries. The materials are becoming cheaper and cheaper towards the end of the century.


The exhibition will be open with the same hours of the House Museum:

  • in July from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 7.30pm
  • in August every day from 10am to 7.30pm
  • in September from Tuesday to Sunday from 9.30am to 7.30pm


The entrance is included in the tickets to the House Museum.
