Product Overview

The volume explains, in a rich and detailed way, the transformation of Barbie, the world''s most famous doll and an expression of style and timeless elegance, into Caterina de Medici by means of dressing her in the wedding dress Caterina wore when she married Enrico di Valois on 27 October 1533. The dress was realized in a life-size and in a scale model (Barbie is 29,5 cm) with extraordinary accuracy; it was then presented on 18 January 2008 at Palazzo Medici Riccardi on occasion of the event Pitti Bimbo. The volume is completed by a large introduction on the symbolism of Barbie, the history of Palazzo Medici Riccardi, the figure of Caterina de Medici, court life, and other curiosities on beauty treatments used during the Renaissance. Italian and English text.
