Curated by Alessandra Possamai
The aim of the exhibition ‘Jewellery of power: crowns and tiaras’ is to be an excursus among crowns and tiaras of the past and present, focusing attention on what they are and what they have been. An authentic leap into the tastes and styles of different eras through the works of great artists. A world of creative interest, a testing ground for contemporary goldsmiths and designers.
On display, precious items, symbols of political, social, economic and emotional power and, at the same time, a sign of the excellence of gold art, “works that are present and still extremely current in jewellery production, true icons of style in the past and even now.”
The exhibition therefore blends different times and contexts, presenting crowns and tiaras from high jewellery to fashion, confirming and enhancing the Museo del Gioiello’s pluralistic and inclusive spirit.
