Rome may have been the romantic setting for the iconic film from 1960 but the la dolce vita is also evoked by other romantic cities and lakes of Italy. Venice, Florence and Lake Como provide the inspiration for a delightful collection of three colourful printed silk scarves for women featured on BrightByBlack.co.uk.
These prints are from original oil paintings by a contemporary Italian artist of scenes inspired by the classic works of Canaletto and Bellotto.
Life in Venice
The Venice print features the bustle of daily life on the Grand Canal with the famous Doge’s palace in the background.
The Duomo is depicted as the centrepiece for the Florence print treated with the soft subtle tones that characterise this beautiful city.
Vibrant colours are used to depict the romance of Lake Como and the beautiful resort of Bellagio, known as the ‘Pearl on the Lake’ with the Alps in the background.
Crafted from pure Italian silk these square scarves are oversized at 140cm x 140cm (55in x 55in) so can be draped in a number of ways. They can also double as sarongs as the perfect summer cover-up.
