Writing Fashion in Early Modern Italy

Book Presentation of:
Writing Fashion in Early-Modern italy
From Sprezzatura to Satire
(Ashgate, 2014)
by Eugenia Paulicelli

The author in conversation with:
Virginia Cox, NYU
Bella Mirabella, NYU

The first comprehensive study on the role of Italian fashion and Italian literature, this book analyzes clothing and fashion as described and represented in literary texts and costume books in the Italy of the 16th and 17th centuries. Writing Fashion in Early Modern Italy emphasizes the centrality of Italian literature and culture for understanding modern theories of fashion and gauging its impact in the shaping of codes of civility and taste in Europe and the West. Using literature to uncover what has been called the ‘animatedness of clothing,’ author Eugenia Paulicelli explores the political meanings that clothing produces in public space.
