PIERO TOSI AT THE KEATS-SHELLEY HOUSE

September 12, 2013

Piero Tosi, one of the most celebrated costume designers in the history of cinema (his collaborations with Luchino Visconti are particularly remarkable) and forthcoming receiver of an Honorary Oscar at the 2013 Academy Awards Ceremony, attended the opening ceremony of our Autumn exhibition Ladies in the Spotlight: Mary Shelley and the Romantic Circle. "Maestro" Tosi designed the mannequin representing Mary Shelley, which is currently on display at the Keats-Shelley House wearing a splendid period dress designed by Andrea Sorrentino and released by the talented tailors of the Sartoria Tirelli.
