In Florence is the time of Preziosa 2017, a week dedicated to jewellery. Here is the agenda ♦
Le Arti Orafe, Lao for the friends, is an esteemed jewelery school that attracts students from all over the world. But it is also the organizer of Preziosa 2017, the Florence Jewelery Week, an event dedicated to the world of jewels, artistic research, craftsmanship and design.

The guest will be Petra Hölscher, representing the Neue Sammlung -The Design Museum at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, which houses the most important collection in the world dedicated to contemporary jewelery. In all, a week dedicated to the jewelery world, with exhibitions, conferences, workshops, meetings, demonstrations, with the aim of highlighting the connection between innovative design and technology, artistic research and traditional craftsmanship that influence contemporary jewelery creation international.
