The 2015 Newell D. Goff Lecture
To mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Tirocchi sisters’ shop on Broadway in Providence, we’re honored to welcome Museum of Fine Arts Boston Curator Pamela Parmal to discuss her work with the Tirocchi collection on Sunday, Sept. 20, 3:30pm, at the Rhode Island Historical Society’s Aldrich House (110 Benevolent St.).
The Tirocchi sisters and their employees produced exquisite dresses for high-society women in the early 20th century and left an unparalleled archive of garments, fabrics, ledgers, photographs, and correspondence. This talk is presented as part of the RIHS’s Rhode Island by Design series for 2015, highlighting the role of design in Rhode Island history.
Also, the Providence Preservation Society has undertaken a campaign to save the Kendrick-Prentice-Tirocchi house. To join in their efforts, click here!
