I failed to spot the opening of this rather interesting sounding exhibition which opened at the Gallerie d'Italia in Vicenza at the end of last year. Faustina's Braids: Hairstyles, women and power in the Renaissance promises to examine the complex history of the world of hair in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Of course, the displays rely heavily on works of art from the period, including vast amounts of paintings and sculpture.

The show will run until 7th April 2024.
