NEFER = BELLO
Wednesday, 28 December 2022
h 15:30 - 17:00

" NEFER = BELLO "


For the ancient Egyptians, hieroglyphic writing had a sacred and magical value. Since anything written or drawn had the power to become real, the hieroglyphics had to be executed as accurately as possible. To turn into something real, they had to be perfect, beautiful. In Egyptian, the word nefer meant beautiful but also good. In the laboratory, we will transform words into ornaments... making some hieroglyphs even more "precious", the meaning of which refers to the world of jewels and perfection.

A mysterious eye, a pillar, a knot, a bizarre creature. These are just four of the most used amulets by the ancient Egyptians, each with a particular function. An amulet is a magical object that can be worn on the body or attached to clothing and even hidden in the bandages of mummies. Its purpose is to defend the wearer from dangers and threats. In the laboratory, we will create a personal amulet to keep our fears away.

ECO D’EGITTO

" ECO D’EGITTO "


Over the centuries, the images and atmospheres associated with ancient Egypt have never ceased to inspire artists, craftsmen, stylists and musicians. Even today, the echo of the charm of a millenary culture is felt. Some of the jewels in the collection tell of a phenomenon known as Egyptomania. At the museum, we will go in search of jewels that "speak" of Egypt. In the laboratory, each participant will design a contemporary jewel inspired by pharaonic luxury and opulence.

" DISEGNI PREZIOSI "


Designing a jewel, choosing the materials, combining them, cutting them, shaping them, requires study and great experience. In the Museum we will let ourselves be inspired by the jewels on display to understand how important the chosen theme and the project are, even before the actual realization. Nature, art, architecture, history... there are many sources of inspiration. In the workshop, each participant will be able to choose their favorite theme and design their own jewel to "walk around" their creativity...
