- Milan exhibition offers some 'very British glamour'

December 16, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can announce that if people are heading to Italy for a new year holiday in 2010, then they may want to book Milan hotels and see what one of the fashion capitals of the world has to offer them.

For those who have an interest in art and photography, there is one event that is bound to capture their imagination and encourage them to spend an afternoon feeling like they have never left the UK.

A Very British Glamour is a collection of works by the celebrated and innovative artist Norman Parkinson.

Being shown at the Galleria Carla Sozzani until January 17th 2010, the exhibition showcases a variety of his work that is bound to remind people why he is considered to be one of the foremost portrait and fashion photographers.

Parkinson, who was born in 1913 and died in 1990, was considered to have produced some truly innovative work and often ignored the studio in favour of taking his models to outdoor settings for shoots.

Entry to the exhibition is free and it is open from 3:30am-7:30pm on Mondays, 10:30am-9pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays and 10:30am-7:30pm for the rest of the week.

Anyone who particularly enjoys the display or the work of Parkinson will be able to pick up a book, also entitled A Very British Glamour, that features his work.

Commenting on A Very British Glamour, Jessica Reading, head of marketing for LateRooms, said: "We strongly urge people thinking of going to A Very British Glamour and who need hotel Milano to book early to avoid disappointment."
