Historical Female Italian Clubs
Simona Antico poses here inside the remains of an old Roman bath during the morning promenade walk in Ostia Antica organized by "In the World of Jane Austen," an historical female Italian club, on April 14, 2018.
"Audrey Hepburn always said that Paris is always a good idea," said Antico. "Well Jane Austen is always a good solution to everything in life."
When she is not feeling completely normal she often refers to Hepburn quote: "I am not a sad woman, I am a noble woman," and the world gets back to round again.
She has been dressing-up with clothing that date back from 1817 to 1920's since the beginning when the group was first formed. She started for fun, now it has so many dressed she needed to build a whole other closet to fit them in. Her husband is not at all too happy about this. She often jokes with the other members of the group that she cannot fit one more "époque" in her guard-robe, but then she always manage to buy that "one more dress."
