VERBA OLENT. A journey into the literature of scent
Fragrances and odors through the centuries of Western literature: a secret and highly emotional trail, with scents that express eros, nostalgia, mores and mysticism. From the Bible to Baudelaire, from Shakespeare to Pascoli, the most mysterious – and most neglected – of the senses identifies characters, conveys feelings, evokes memories – it expresses the impalpable, the invisible, the unspeakable.
Pitti Fragranze presents VERBA OLENT. Viaggio nella letteratura del profumo – A journey into the literature of scent - through the thousand nuances of literary scents or scented literature. The project springs from a concept by Silvia Bruno Ventre, the Fragranze marketing consultant and is curated by Giovanna Zucconi, journalist, radio-tv personality and the spirit behind Serra&Fonseca, the brand that explores the links between perfume, literature, art and design.
