Italian decorative arts from the early 20th century are set to be the focus of an upcoming show at Paris's Musee d'Orsay.

'Dolce Vita? Italian Decorative Art 1900–1940, from the Liberty to Industrial Design' will be at the one-time train station venue starting April next year.

Based on level five of the museum, the display will feature some 100 exhibits, shown in chronological order. Running until September 13th, it will look at topics such as Liberty style and and Futurism.

The museum can be found at 62 rue de Lille, Paris, in a part of the city where visitors will be in walking distance from places like The Louvre and Les Arts Decoratifs, as well as The Pompidou Centre, which specialises in modern art.

Other exciting places to see in Paris include the Grevin waxwork museum, home to a wide range of wax figures, and not far from the city you'll find the exquisite Palace of Versailles.ADNFCR-408-ID-801737010-ADNFCR
