Description: Mantova: Maurizio Corraini, 2010. 21cm., hardcover, 56pp. numerous b&w photos. Summary: A project to approach both movie icons’ and stars’ beauty: a homage to the female form and to the rite that has celebrated its beauty from time immemorial, bathing. Through photographs that came to light in the Getty Images archives, shining stars of the cinema, women in art, poetry muses, female athletes and starlets of 20th Century enjoy their bodies, relax in their bathtubs, appear from behind a shower curtain. With an ironic smile, a funny look and, of course, the man who loved women: Marcello Mastroianni. On the occasion of the Salone del Mobile 2010, a video-installation was projected onto the cupola of the Planetarium Ulrico Hoepli in Milan and celebrated beauty in the sky and on earth. At the same time, this book aims to be a homage to feminine fascination, timeless like the harmony of celestial spheres, not influenced by the evolution of beauty’s aesthetic principles, even in the home’s most innermost room.
