"Italy, legend and icon. This is the title that I have given to the section I have organized for Vicenza's Jewellery Museum - an exquisitely Italian jewellery section of items I have selected from the late 1400s to 1932. I chose them with a particular tone, and the tone is that of materials and working techniques. Italy has undoubtedly excelled at working some materials and the jewellery displayed in the section is the proof. And so I would naturally say that we must begin with a selection of cameos."
