"The only word Elizabeth knows in Italian is Bvlgari" -Richard Burton

Today we went to the Bvlgari exhibit at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni. It was fabulous. The exhibit was set up in a series of rooms, each devoted to a certain time period. Each room displayed the jewels famous for that time period. There was even an entire room devoted to Elizabeth Taylor's collection of jewels. In one room there were small televisions set up showing the stars wearing Bvlgari jewels on the red carpet. I liked seeing the jewels that Anna Magnani wore. She was a famous Italian actress that we have seen in a few movies as part of class on neorealist films. I had no idea she was so famous and so fabulous. She wore a 25 karat Bvlgari ring on her pinky finger. The jewels were amazing to see. It was by far my favorite museum I have seen in Rome.
