sisi collezione privata barbara cesa 3bWelcome to the Cultural Association dedicated to promoting the figure of Elizabeth of Austria (Sisi).
As it is stated in the Statute, the mission of this association is the dissemination of the empress Elizabeth’s authentic (historical) portrait. Our main purpose is to re-establish her real identity and reveal her complexity and engaging personality amongst the well-known figures of the Habsburg monarchy and to wipe out some shallow and romanticized stereotypes created by film industry and literary fiction. For this reason the association aims, through its supporters and members, to organize thematic programmes, conferences and events on her majesty’s footsteps in order to examine in depth her true personality and her family circle with writers and scholars.
