Venice 1520 by Tadarida Venice 1520 by Tadarida
Dressses from 16th century Venice.

Woman on the left is wearing a balzo, headwear that was very popular in the early 15th century and it made a comeback during the twenties.

In 16th century, Italy was divided and each of the regions had its unique style of clothing. However there were similarities in the general silhouette and in the 1530s it was a dress with quite high, straight waistline and big sleeves that ended above the elbow.

More early 1500s in Florence:
In Lombardy:
In Rome:
In Bologne:

Ta w czerwonym wygląda jak w XIX wieku.

W latach 30-tych mocno się inspirowano włoskim renesansem (włosy, biżuteria, bufiaste rękawy)

I really like the expression on the face of the woman on the right.

i think you mean the 1400's. the one on the left looks a heck of a lot like a portrait of a pope's mistress in the 1400's Italy.

Nope, I meant 1530s. Just look at some paintings from that era.
