le ragazze dello swing

Photobucket


about a month ago,i watched a tv series called "le ragazze dello swing"(swing girls).
it's the story about the trio lescano,a popular swing trio during the fascist regime. the 3 sisters,judith,kitty and alexandra lived in italy,but were from holland and to mantain their original accent the producers used three dutch actresses Andrea Osvárt, Lotte Verbeek and Elise Schaap. originally, the name of the trio was "leschan trio" but they italianized their surname into lescano,since during fascism non-italian words were prohibited. they reached a great success but by the beginning of the war,despite the fact that mussolini was a great fan of them, they were imprisoned in genova because the regime found out their mother was jewish. after their release judith,alexandra and their mother emigrated to argentina,while kitty remained in italy with her italian husband and left the trio. her substitute was maria bria,but no one found out kitty left the trio because at that time tv didn't exist and almost no one knew how kitty looked like. the series was a great inspiration for 30s to mid 40s outfits; last sunday me and my family went to a lunch in rome and i wore my new 30s style dress in blu(one of the colours i like the most)made by me and my mom(it was a great collaboration i think!),with my super-cute shoes i received as bday present from my boyfriend

antique newspapers

a month ago,i've been to the montly vintage & antique fair in my town,and i've found something that really captured my mind : antique newspapers.
i've bought 3 pieces,one from 1900,one from 1929 and one from 1938. the last one is a women's magazine and it's about life of the mothers and housewifes of the time. i bought the first 2 for 5 euro each and the last one for only 3 euro!next sunday the fair will be here again and i'm looking forward to looking for "new" magazines to buy!

un mese fa,sono stata alla fiera mensile dell'antichità e del vintage che si svolge nella mia città,e ho trovato qualcosa che ha proprio catturato la mia mente: antichi giornali.
ho comprato 3 pezzi,uno del 1900,un altro del 1929 e uno del 1938. L'ultimo è un giornale per donne e tratta della vita di madri e casalinghe del tempo. Ho comprato i primi due pre 5 euro l'uno e l'ultimo per soli 3 euro!la prossima domenica la fiera sarà di nuovo quì e non vedo l'ora di cercare "nuovi" giornali da comprare!
