When not one but three habitual readers of the blog that put me on the track of the same story is because it has to be special and interesting muy and yes, ‘has thus been!

I put in a situation and you summarize the info I have. Paris 40. Marthe de Florian, also known as Madame de Florian, an actress and socialite of the time, usually at parties of Parisian high society, will live – all seems to indicate that so precipitously to the Riviera and leaves behind an apartment remains closed and bolted for more than 70 years. How is it possible that no one had discovered before such a jewel? Well, apparently because she paid rent religiously until his death, ninety-odd years. But knowing the human condition, I suspect not trust the existence of this beautiful place to anyone else, because I doubt that any family so so scrupulous respect the wishes of an “eccentric old lady”. So, for reasons unknown, this apartment remained intact until the death of Madame de Florian a few years ago and it was like all those terosos, his furniture, his paintings (apparently, is herself the woman pink dress end painted by Giovanni Boldini), some clothes, an ostrich! … came to light. · You’ve probably seen Already photos of this amazing apartment in Paris for 7 That Remains untouched decades.
