Love, (Old) Italian Style

-------

Proving that an obsession with marriage and weddings is hardly a recent phenomenon, the Met’s Art and Love in Renaissance Italy exhibit opens tomorrow with 150 objects, including one of the earliest known diamond wedding rings, and paintings from Titian, Botticelli, and Lorenzo Lotto that all revolve around the subject of romance and nuptials. Is there a direct line from these works to The Bachelor or Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? We doubt it. On a similar note: It’s also highly unlikely that there’s a word in old Italian for bridezilla. Click here for a sneak-peek slideshow.
