Fashion tortures during Renaissance

Fashion tortures during Renaissance. (Portrait of a young lady by Paolo Uccello)

Cosa non fanno le donne per apparire più belle… Piccola storia di una tortura rinascimentale

Per amore della moda e per bellezza, noi donne ci sottoponiamo spesso a svariate condanne: depilazione, tacchi altissimi, scarpe scomode, piastrature folli ai capelli, e via dicendo. Fino a non molto tempo fa, le nostre bisnonne si costringevano alla tortura del busto strettissimo, che toglieva il fiato e causava lo svenimento facile.

Ma prima ancora, pensate, c’è chi se la passava anche peggio. Voi pensate che le stranezze nella moda siano un’invenzione recente, e invece no. Esistono da sempre. Pensate che una donna per essere bella, nel primo Quattrocento, doveva necessariamente avere la fronte alta. Ma alta alta, intendo, come non esiste in natura. E infatti, se la depilavano. (Ahia!)

For the love of fashion and beauty, women often refer to several convictions: depilation, high heels, uncomfortable shoes, crazy hair tortures, and so on. For a long time, our great-grandmothers has been forced into corsets, which often took the breath away and easily caused fainting.

But before that, there was people who got along even worse. You think that the oddities in fashion are a recent invention, but no, they aren’t. They have always existed. A woman to be considered beautiful in the early Fifteenth century, must necessarily had a high forehead. But I mean HIGH, as it doesn’t exist in nature. And so, they used to epilate it. (Ouch!)
