Author(s): Ivan Cenzi and Carlo Vannini
Paris as you've never seen it before. Paris Mirabella is a guide to the bizarre and lesser-known Paris by Ivan Cenzi and Carlo Vannini. This volume invites you to break through the surface of a such a mystery thanks to fifteen fascinating experiences, in their own distinct way; fifteen invitations to wonder, to begin to unveil the secrets dotting the flashing lights of the Ville Lumiere. You will admire an enormous collection of gramophones and vintage record players; you will enter the threshold of a museum exhibiting two-headed calves and skinned bodies; you will stroll down the headstone rows of the pet cemetery; you will explore the ancient and naughty eroticism of the Belle Epoque; you will be charmed by wizards and automated mannequins, weird shops full of stuffed dead animals and wonderful XIX century carousels. Hidden treasures waiting to be discovered by the contemporary divers – if not of literature, as in Balzac’s oeuvre – of the marvel world, just like the readers of our #BizzarroBazar series. Fifteen unusual and charming landmarks.
