The first three encounters of the conference will cover the history of dance from the Napoleonic period to the rise of the industriale bourgeoisie in the years after the Unification of Italy. The fourth encounter will analyze the changes in dance fashion, which provided nineteenth century women with the opportunity to flaunt their most sumptuous wear. Sessions are held on Thursdays, 14, 21, 28 October and 4 November 2004, at 5:30 P.M. in the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum's Grand Salon; attendance is free based on availability. The conference and a winter exhibit on 19th century miniatures are a part of the museum's 2004 celebrations for its 10th anniversary. The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum, a late 19th century collector's house located in downtown Milan, is one of Europe's most important historic house museums. A free e-mail newsletter is available on the museum's web site.
