"Bags and purses, the aesthetic/symbolic evolution of an apparently functional accessory, from 1795 to the present "

Chair: Sara Piccolo Paci

As one of the most adaptable and functional forms of container, the bag has always played a fundamental role in the economy of labour and commerce.

But looks matter, and above all in the last two centuries bags and purses have taken on a different valence, with deeper-reaching and more complex ramifications than ever before.

Together, we will be looking at how women’s bags have evolved from the late 1700s through today and exploring the value of the bag from the commercial and communicative points of view, as well as some of the names which have made the women’s handbag their strong point.
