HISTORY OF COSTUME STARTING FROM A MASTERPIECE BY GIORGIONE
The Castelfranco Madonna, Giorgione’s masterpiece, will be the starting point for an exhibition illustrating the history of costume and fabric.
The exhibition entitled “The textures of Giorgione” will start from the rooms of the Museo Casa Giorgione (Giorgione House Museum) and will continue outside, in different sites of the town of Castelfranco.
Of course this is an art exhibition, but is dedicated especially to the history of costume and fabric. Because it’s starting from Giorgione’s masterpiece that you can understand that nothing is as it seems, and textures, meant as fabrics, are symbols but also messages that the characters portrayed by great artists wanted to imprint on our eyes and mind.

The exhibition will invite you to admire masterpieces by Giorgione, but also by Titian, Lorenzo Lotto, Jacopo Bassano, Paolo Veronese, and many more artists by observing the clothes worn by the characters portrayed, the accessories which were a status symbol, a symbol of elegance and economic power of those who have been the protagonists of timeless masterpieces of history of art.
Because those were commissioned portraits aimed at showing that the characters portrayed held a specific social role at that time.
