A Treasure Throve In Vicenza | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to my Friday Fashion episode.
The Italian city of Vicenza, near Venice has the primacy of being the first city in the world to have set up a Museum of Jewelry. In nine exhibition halls inside a Palladian style Basilica, the museum accommodates jewels, which will take visitors on a journey through time and cultures. The exposition does not narrate history in chronological time, it is not meant to be a dusty voyage in memory lane, says Director Alba Cappellieri. The nine halls are divided by:
• symbols of jewels such as love, power (crowns and bandeau) and political meanings of jewelry;
• artistic and sculptural language of jewelry making;
• beauty of colliers and copyrighted jewelry made by famous houses for famous people;
• magic meanings of ancient amulets tied to superstitions and religions.
The unprecedented exhibition, which will rotate every two years, also includes fashion bijou pieces, icon jewelry, function, design, the future of jewelry and the use of new material.

This museum so particular in its genre is intended as a public place with multiple functions where visitors and jewelry experts can meet or as a place for future cultural exchanges. It was created also to promote the Italian excellence in know-how in style and to promote the cultural identity of the Italian Veneto region for which jewelry has been one of its main productive art form through centuries.

This treasure trove was edited and directed by Alba Cappellieri, lecturer in Jewelry Design at the Politecnico in Milano and a leading national expert. It opened its doors at the end of December 2014, I hope you have the opportunity to visit it. Ciao,
Valentina
