THE JEWELLERY MUSEUM INAUGURATES ITS 2ND EDITION 2017-2018 WITH NEW INTERNATIONAL CURATORS
Today, December 16th 2016, the Museo del Gioiello is inaugurating a fascinating journey through time and jewellery history in a new exhibition to mark the start of the 2nd edition 2017-2018 with ten new international curators in attendance.
The first in Italy and one of only a few in the world exclusively dedicated to jewellery, located inside Vicenza's Basilica Palladiana - a 16th century historical building listed as UNESCO World Heritage since 1994 - the Museo del Gioiello jewellery museum has clocked up 34,000 visitors since its opening on 24th December 2014.
A project, devised and launched by Fiera di Vicenza, it is managed by Italian Exhibition Group S.p.A. (IEG)- the new trade show company generated by the merger between Rimini Fiera and Fiera di Vicenza - in partnership with Vicenza Council.
To welcome the 2017-2018 edition and introduce the visitor to the timeless and limitless magic of jewellery in the new rooms curated by international experts, is Giampiero Bodino's “Rosa dei Venti” necklace, which the Museum's Director, Alba Cappellieri, chose because it represents the Italian ability to unite hand and mind, craftsmanship and innovation.
The Museo del Gioiello is the result of IEG's commitment to promoting the cultural universe of Italian gold and jewellery, sectors in which the Company is recognized as an international Business Hub with its VICENZAORO international show, scheduled to take place in Vicenza in January 2017 (VICENZAORO January 20-25 January).
The Museo del Gioiello therefore continues in its intent to be a tangible flywheel for promoting artistic "Beauty" and "Well Done” and, with its biennial turnaround of items on display, confirms its continuous standing as a first-class place to visit.
