Elizabeth Taylor and her first husband Jack Hilton in Sanremo, 1950
Sanremo has always been sought after by vips from every era. But it was in the 50's and the 60's that there was a real boom among the artists. In conjunction with the first editions of the Sanremo Festival in fact, the city was filled with celebrities, not only linked to the world of music.
Hollywood actors and actresses did not miss a stopover in the city of flowers. Among these also was Elizabeth Taylor, as can be seen in this historic photo with the first of her 7 husbands, Jack Hilton.
Attracted also by the nearness of Monte Carlo and the world revolving around Grace Kelly and the Principate, Sanremo became a destination for sophisticated tourism, elegant and luxurious, made up of actors, actresses, literary people, philosophers and all the beau monde, In the historic photographs of the sanremese photographer Alfredo Moreschi it is possible to see a real gallery of vips in the city, in the golden years.
