Odoardo Fioravanti

Curator

Odoardo Fioravanti

"The curatorship work started from the fact that I, in my profession, deal in industrial design and therefore, an area that often works on the technological side of design and, in my line of research, I usually investigate into the borderline spaces between the design and technology worlds. when I turned my gaze towards the jewellery world, my very first thought was to understand what could be the future of these things that historically are considered as embellishments, or jewels or simply jewellery. What immediately struck the eye is that this category is in constant change and is rapidly aiming at something different than its usual self."
