Around World War II, Mrs. de Florian fled from her apartment in Paris. The rest of her life she neatly paid the rent, but never returned to the house. When she died at the age of 91, her heirs discovered the forgotten apartment. They entered a time portal back to the forties, because no one has been inside for seventy years! Between all the old dusty stuff they found a painting by the artist Giovanni Boldini, one of the most important painters of the Belle Epoque. The painting was later auctioned for 2.3 million euros. A beautiful, mysterious story. Just like the pictures below.
