Director's Choice

Rosa dei Venti by Giampiero Bodino represents the perfect synthesis between formal beauty and the manufacturing quality of Italian jewellery but also a journey through time via the classical tradition of the Renaissance and the contemporary skills of craftsmen. Beauty, quality and variety are the characteristics of the Italian approach that the world lauds us.

        As an anthropologist, I wanted to choose some specific talismans and amulets, the main priority being to tell a story that goes beyond the boundaries of our western culture, so you will therefore find a series of elements in the Gioielli Magia section that dates back to pre-Roman times, and which also goes beyond the pattern and structure of our organized societies to focus attention on all those elements and beliefs that are typical of societies and which we would define as primitive or, in any case, non-European.

      • Function
        Room

        Jewellery is often considered useless, opulent and with no other function than to be decorative.

      • Art
        Room

        During the 20th century, numerous sculptors dedicated themselves to making jewellery, transferring their figurative skills, sometimes in the form of simple miniaturisation or by working with the minute scale of jewellery itself.

      • Fashion
        Room

        Jewellery has always been extremely closely tied to fashion and from ancient times through to the modern day, fashion jewellery has been an aesthetic mirror of society, costume development and technological progress.

      • Design
        Room

        Design is one of the most interesting expressions of contemporary society, due to its capacity to interweave different disciplines and create exchanges of knowledge.

      • Icons
        Room

        Icons are narrative pieces of jewellery, items able to tell exceptional stories through their technical and historical details.

      • Future
        Room

        What will jewellery be like in the future? Odoardo Fioravanti’s selection will try to answer this question, presenting visions and panoramas of the future, by looking at materials and innovative technologies, items with new content, new interaction with the body, and new contexts.
