Spectacular jewelry by Bulgari in an exhibition in Italy dedicated to the Roman Maison ♦ ︎
Not everyone knows that the origin of the Bulgari name derives from the fact that the historic jewelry Maison, which is now part of the LVMH group, was founded in Bulgaria. But it happened a long time ago: in 1884. Bulgari was founded by the Greek silversmith Sotirios Voulgaris, who arrived in Italy and became Sotirio Bulgari. Many years have passed and Bulgari has become an icon of luxury, capable of creating exceptional jewels.
Now the most beautiful jewels of the Bulgari Heritage collection, including those belonging to the divas of the Dolce Vita, will be exhibited from June 26 (inauguration on the 25th) until November 3rd, in the exhibition entitled Bulgari, the story, the dream, hosted by two locations Museum Center of Lazio, Castel Sant’Angelo and Palazzo Venezia.
The project was conceived by the Polo Museale del Lazio, directed by Edith Gabrielli, in collaboration with Bulgari and created through contents selected by a scientific committee composed of exponents of the academic world such as Francesco Benigno (Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa), Chiara Ottaviano (historian and sociologist of mass communication), Daniela Luigia Caglioti (University Federico II of Naples), Emanuela Scarpellini (University of Milan). The themes related to style and creativity were developed by Lucia Boscaini, Bulgari brand and heritage curator. Curated by Chiara Ottaviano, the exhibition traces the history of Bulgari as an example of success in luxury.
