Seasons of the Riviera: inspiration

The French and Italian Riviera for centuries has been an attractive destination, but it wasn’t until the 1920’s when Coco Chanel introduced the outrageous idea that the suntan was a sign of health and wealth that the “Riviera” became a “chic” place to visit. With its mild climate, Mediterranean vegetation and quaint cliffside villages, trendy resorts soon blossomed. San Remo, Bordighera and Portofino and their French counterparts Nice, St. Tropez and Cannes, not to leave out Monte Carlo became the "in" places to be. And with them followed the artists, creatives and intellectuals. “Season on the Riviera: inspiration is the theme for Patrizia’s upcoming art exhibition opening on the 3rd of September in the Italian Riviera town of Bordighera. The month-long exhibition hosted by Hotel Villa Miki will cover the interpretation of the seasons on the Riviera along with creative inspiration found living and creating in this storied location sandwiched between sea and alps. A conference How the Riviera Inspires: factors that influence and continue to inspire, artists, creatives and intellectuals” is part of the scheduled events.

Standing near two meters tall in the clouds with spear at left, she is swathed in muted creams on vibrant Pompeii red. This section of the museum, on the top floor is devoted to area findings and priceless Roman artifacts.
