In addition, between Palladio and the prizes reserved to the big of cinema there is a big distance, even as history and culture. That said, here are the winners of 2017 (the fifth) of Palladio awards, assigned in Vicenza to the jewelry world. Which then, as commented in the stands VicenzaOro a designer who prefers to remain anonymous, is fair to put together in competition giants as Cartier and Boucheron, which have large capital to invest with small Italian companies, it is another matter.
