Persia of jewels on exhibition




The jewels of ancient and modern Persia at the Bijou Museum of Casalmaggiore ♦ ︎
Persia is not just one of a thousand and one night. And it is not just the one that is sometimes read in the chronicles of geopolitics. There is also a Persia that has a millennial culture, which is also expressed with jewelery. Who is curious to know what art jewelry manufacture in Iran there are now, can go to visit an exhibit set up in the Bijou Museum of Casalmaggiore (Cremona, November 25 to January 28). The exhibition is called Splendid Persia, visions in Jewel, and curated by Bianca Cappello and the Iranian designer Sogand Nobahar. The exhibition proposes, of course, a selection of historical jewels, but also pieces of contemporary jewelery.
Among the ancient jewels are pieces that originate in ancient Mesopotamia, while among the contemporary jewels are those of great Iranian designers who reinterpret ideas and symbols of the Persian and Islamic traditions. Beside them, with a bold parallel, there is a selection of jewels made in Italy from the sixties to the 2000s thousand years, even those inspired by iconography, Persian colors and poetry. Surprisingly now you know that they exist. Moreover, with an even more surprising mix, the conceptual jewels of a group of young students from the Brera Design Academy’s Fine Art course are displayed.
Finally, the outline of the exhibition is exposed by the unpublished photographs of photographer Federico Wilhelm in Iran. Lavinia Andorno
