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.
