I stayed in Pavia for three days and, thanks to my friends, I discovered interesting places to shopping, eat and relax.
Polvere di Stelle by Annalisa is a fashion boutique in Sannazzaro de' Burgondi where quality and affordable prices are for everyone. With the summer sales season, I seized the moment and looked for something very special to buy. The shop has a fresh appeal and glamorous setup. The interior decors perfectly coordinated with the summer theme of the season. I personally spent more time taking pictures of the setting than choosing my outfits.
Annalisa, the owner, clearly shows her dashing flair with that too, from the tapestry behind the cashier to the white well- embellished shelves. The piece of tapestry recollects a giant colourful gem. The embroideries look sophisticated and finely done. Pink flowers and purple pins surrounded by shiny studs make the perfect frame for the central blossoming art.
Watermelons filled the small shelf and matched the exotic style of the bigger one next to it. The paper and wood fan, representing a village and its river, supports the pair of little statues and lanterns. The greens and blues make the shop stand out. Clothes are of excellent design and every woman would find a unique piece for an outstanding outfit.
The Certosa of Pavia is a magnificent and detailed piece of art located just 7 km north-east from Pavia. It is a monastery and it's an example of Italian Gothic architecture. The construction of the building began in 1396 by the willing of the nobleman and Lord of Milan, Gian Galeazzo Visconti.
The façade is famous for the marbles and the detailed decorations and the interiors for a mix of baroque, classical and renaissance styles. Taking pictures inside is not allowed, while in the external area cameras are welcomed to picture the gardens and the cloisters.
