MOONLIGHT GARDEN is an original eveningwear ensemble featuring a suede jacket embellished with gold, silver, lilac, and green translucent and opaque ribbons woven through a series of shaped cuts in the fashion fabric to create flower buds, intertwining stems, and flying bug.

Bernini’S D’Aste Family Tombs In S. Maria In Via Lata, Rome: A Reconstruction, Dorothy Habel May 1997

Bernini’S D’Aste Family Tombs In S. Maria In Via Lata, Rome: A Reconstruction, Dorothy Habel

Dorothy Metzger Habel

Newly discovered documentation provides evidence for the original design of the complementary wall memorials honoring Giovanni Battista d'Aste and his wife Clarice Margana, located on opposing walls of the choir of S. Maria in Via Lata in Rome. The new evidence proves that the compositions of both monuments--designed by Bernini and completed in 1643--were altered at some point after August 1660. This discovery invites an exploration of the activities of the Sacra Congregazione della Visita Apostolica under Pope Alexander VII (1655-67) and a reassessment of the d'Aste monuments relative to Bernini’s later tomb designs
