The Young Toscanini
This is the dress worn by the famous actress Elizabeth Taylor in Franco Zeffrelli’s film The Young Toscanini. The costume designer was the eminent creative artist Tom Rand and the dress is on display in the Barley Hall, York. Interestingly, there is a William Morris connection, as Arturo Toscanini recorded choral works with lyrics by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris’s close associate.
