Lace-works as in the 900s

 


Visitors: 648

There are many kind of lace-work arts in Italy, such as in many other Europe countries. But some of them are quite on the way to disappear.

In the central portion of Italy the great town of Bologna -one of the richest town in Italy, important university and medical research center- in the early 900s, during the two world wars, this town was protagonist of an economic miracle called “aemilia ars".

Aemilia ars was the name given to the local decorative art nouveau style (also called “liberty")and it was also the name given to the Bologna needle-lace, born thanks to the Cavazza family.

Countess Lina Cavazza in particular, besides devoting herself to numerous charitable works, committed herself to generating a female industry which could guarantee well-paid work to women and at the same time affirm social and human values.

Despite wars, natural calamities, earthquakes and serious economic crises, Bologna lace survived and helped whole families to survive, too.
