RARE vintage Weekend Style and Inspiration: The Mysterious Photo of Letizia Buitoni

I found this Saturday's addition to RARE vintage's weekend inspiration board here in my father-in-laws apartment where we are staying until we can go back to our apartment.

It is a photo of my husband's aunt Letizia Buitoni.  She is most likely wearing a costume from an opera she was performing in but I am drawn to the sense of mystery in this photo. Who was the photographer? Why is her gaze so intense and so intimate?  Is it pre performance and she is already in character?  Does she mourn  a dead lover?  Is she exiled from her family because of a man she loves?  She looks beautiful, wounded yet independent and strong.
