Isabella Stewart Gardner and Peggy Guggenheim were both role-shattering pioneers with a consuming passion for art. Both were great lovers of Italy and of Venice in particular. Both were willful and determined women, each propelled by a singular vision. And both would change the cultural climate of the cities they called home. Join Carla Gambescia, award-winning author of La Dolce Vita University: An Unconventional Guide to Italian Culture from A-to-Z, in another visually-engaging journey to explore the storied lives, splendid art collections and enduring legacies of these indomitable and unforgettable women, and two of greatest and most prescient art collectors of the last century.
