A LOVE STORY IN PARIS
La Fiermontina – Family Collection is a tribute to a passionate and fascinating family story, which begins in Puglia and moves to Paris, where an exciting new chapter unfolds…
Antonia Fiermonte moved to Paris in her youth and became the muse of two artists and friends: René Letourneur and Jacques Zwobada. René divorced his wife in order to marry Antonia. She joined him in Fontenay-aux-Roses, where René was living and working with his longtime friend, the eclectic artist, sculptor and designer Jacques Zwobada.
Zwobada fell desperately in love with Antonia and courted her relentlessly for several years, until eventually she gave in and left René for him.
“There is no country, no sky that pleases me…
There is only your flesh and your soul.”
– Jacques Zwobada, December 1945 –
