This museum is the first in Italy and one of the few worldwide to be dedicated exclusively to jewellery.
The Jewellery Museum, a permanent museum space of 410 square metres inside the Palladian Basilica, is a project developed by Fiera di Vicenza in partnership with the City Council of Vicenza.
The new Museum, offers an original, varied aesthetic and educational jewellery experience, enhancing items with ancient origins, deeply rooted in human culture.
Curated and directed by Alba Cappellieri, Professor of Jewellery Design at the Polytechnic of Milan and Italy’s foremost jewellery expert, the museum offers a scientific, learning experience.
On the ground floor, an entrance, with the bookshop as a cultural reference point and a stock of national and international publications on jewellery.
This is followed by a versatile room dedicated to temporary exhibitions.
The top floor of the museum has a brand new layout with nine exhibition rooms, curated by international experts: Symbol, Magic, Function, Beauty, Art, Fashion, Design, Icons, Future.
A bold choice of curators, made with the aim of restoring some of the semantic complexity of jewellery from very different viewpoints.
