L'Opera ha bisogno di uno scenario senza il quale i grandi libretti non potrebbero esistere. 
Questa volta le quinte si aprono sulla magica capitale Andalusa, una delle città più cosmopolite al mondo nei secoli XVI e XVII, che catturava i compositori delle opere più popolari che anelavano impossibili e passionali storie d'amore.  
L'autore del Barbiere di Siviglia e de Le Nozze di Figaro, Pierre Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais, era un drammaturgo francese che venne in Spagna per motivi economici e ne rimase affascinato.
Le sue trame divennero famose quando Gioacchino Rossini e Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart le adattarono all'opera.
Ebbene se volessimo vivere in prima persona il libretto e i luoghi, dovremmo dirigerci verso il Barrio de Santa Cruz. L'antico ghetto ebraico, lì dove si trova l'autentica magia sevillana, un intricato percorso di stradine, pati, piazzette e giardini.
Un vero piacere per i sensi, un labirinto di vicoli sinuosi con le belle case in stile sivigliano, i balconi di ferro forgiato e i vasi di fiori, che ci portano indietro nei secoli quando Figaro viveva le sue avventure, fischiettando "bravo, bravissimo", fino al balcone ove Rosina aspettava, ascoltava ed anelava il suo amato pretendente segreto.
E mentre mi perdo tra le viuzze piene di leggende, qui dove si sono consumati amori e duelli, magari canticchiando Rossini e Mozart, indosso un top con tasconi laterali e un paio di pantaloni a vita alta nella più classica delle color combo: nero e cammello, perchè basta poco per essere chic, come in questo look dal mood retrò parisienne.

(Clicca qui se ti sei perso il mio primo post da Siviglia).

Surrounding the central plaza on which Seville’s mighty cathedral squats is the charming old Jewish neighborhood of Santa Cruz, one of Andalusia’s most iconic barrios.
This is the colorful, characterful center of old Seville, and although it’s always packed with tourists, it hasn’t lost the small-town ambiance that has defined it for centuries. This maze of narrow cobbled streets and little squares brings you out onto the absurdly romantic Plaza Alfaro, likely to be busy with tourists pointing their cameras upwards and snapping away at the building that is said to have inspired the balcony scene in the Rossini's opera "The Barber of Seville", a masterpiece of opera buffa, inspired by Beaumarchais' play of the same name.
Whether this tale is apocryphal or not, it’s easy to imagine Figaro scaling this, one of Seville’s prettiest buildings, to reach the object of his desire.                                                                            
Just to wander around Santa Cruz, and almost certainly get lost, if it’s your first time, is an experience in itself. You just have to come to Seville, savor its magic, stroll in the narrow streets full of legends, perhaps humming Rossini and Mozart.
While I'm walking here, where love, legends, duels, even stories related to literature, art and music have been consummated, I'm wearing a top with side pockets and high-waisted trousers in the most classic combo color: black and camel, because it takes little to be chic, like in this Parisienne look with a retro mood.

  5. Mi piace tanto come hai indossato gli stivali con gli pantaloni cropped! Hai creato un bellissimo look, molto elegante e feminile. Sei tanto bella come stilosa! Devo dire che sempre hai location piu bellissimi! El balcon de Rosina e un lugho da visitare! No conoscevo prima e non sapevo che Andalusa ha tante opere di arte.

  63. Non so come mai mi sono persa questo post, però sono in tempo per recuperare. Da bambina leggevo i romanzi rosa ambientati in Spagna e da sempre ho voluto vedere e visitare Andalusia, beh, adesso almeno me la sono goduta dalle tue favolose fotografie. Il tuo look è favoloso come sempre, adoro ogni elemento in particolare e il loro abbinamento prova il tuo ottimo gusto per la moda.
    Saluti,
    Flo
