"Choosing the items to display in Vicenza's Museo del Gioiello was governed by a cross-fertilization between the western and eastern worlds because I believe that it is in diversities and differences that one is able to progress, even in such an apparently futile field as jewellery, which is, instead, the result of work, culture, religion and symbols. The choice began from fibulas, because, as an art historian and archaeologist, I am extremely fond of the 7th and 6th century B.C."
