The Museum is inaugurating its third biennial on 14th December inside Vicenza’s Basilica Palladiana
With an entirely new selection, the third biennial at Vicenza’s Museo del Gioiello, the jewellery museum promoted by Italian Exhibition Group Spa in partnership with Vicenza Municipality, will see a substantial renewal of its collection.
310 unique and exclusive exhibits, priceless masterpieces, many of which belong to private collections that are not usually accessible to the public or to sector insiders. An original and unprecedented account of the history of jewellery through a “mixture of contemporaneity, suggestions from the past and projections into the future” and 9 internationally famous curators to interpret the extraordinary exhibition area located inside the magnificent Basilica Palladiana.
The Museo del Gioiello, directed by Alba Cappellieri, Professor of Jewellery Design at Milan Polytechnic and Italy’s leading jewellery expert, will be inaugurating its third “edition” on 14th December next which will be accessible to the public until the end of 2020.
On entering the exhibition, the visitor will be greeted by the ‘Flora High Jewellery’ necklace by Bulgari, the item selected by professor Cappellieri as the emblem of the third edition.
9 rooms for nine meanings of jewellery among eras, geographies and origins: jewellery defined as Symbol, Magic, Function, Beauty, Art, Fashion, Design, Icon and Future, each, in the new edition, entrusted to an internationally famous curator who has interpreted the meaning through extraordinarily beautiful and priceless items of jewellery.
.bijouets will be represented in the design room, with two iconic jewels designed by the artist Selvaggia Armani: Ribbon bracelet and Shanghai bracelet.
