The italian jewelry at Poldi Pezzoli

The history of Italian jewelry in the twentieth century in an exhibition at the Museo Poldi Pezzoli in Milan.
To tell the story of the Italian jewel in the twentieth century, it would not be enough encyclopedia. But a close look at a number of particularly great pieces can make an adequate summary. And it is the aim of the exhibition Il gioiello italiano del XX secolo, organized at Museo Poldi Pezzoli in Milan. Melissa Gabardi, which has selected and brought together the 150 pieces on display, wants do a photograph the Italian production through chronological sections dedicated to new historicism, the Liberty, Art Deco, the production of the thirties, forties and fifties, until you get to sixties, seventies, eighties and nineties. In short, nothing is missing. For jewelry lovers or history of goldsmith’s art, it is an interesting opportunity. There are tiaras and diadems, necklaces umbilicals, rings, bracelets, brooches and earrings made by masters like Mario and then Gianmaria Buccellati, Alfredo Ravasco (some works are on display to the public for the first time), Filippo Chiappe, of the Turin Musy, Petochi and Cusi, the neoarcheologismo Codognato, to jewelry in coral Ascione family. The exhibition is broad.
The jewels will be shown in relation to their historical, social and economic, with particular reference to the artistic culture (fashion, design, architecture), as well as events and personalities that have characterized the various ages and influenced public opinion, in particularly members of royal families and movie stars, who were inspiring models of collective taste. An evolution that led to what is now recognized as made in Italy.
