Museo del Gioiello di Vicenza
- Unique and exclusive jewels are exhibited in the evocative spaces of the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, home to a one-of-a-kind Italian museum
- The jewels included here are arranged by theme: Symbol, Magic, Function, Beauty, Art, Fashion, Design, Icons, Future
The Museo del Gioiello in Vicenza - the only example in Italy entirely dedicated to jewellery - is renewed every two years: without permanent collections, it offers biennial exhibitions of unique and exclusive jewels in the evocative spaces of the Basilica Palladiana. For the third biennium since its inauguration (on display until 2020), the museum hosts 310 pieces of inestimable value, exhibited in nine thematic sections curated by as many internationally renowned experts. In presenting the masterpieces of this exhibition, this catalogue gathers the contributions of the curators which, far from the usual museum criteria of chronological or stylistic classification, restore the complexity of the jewel through multiple points of view, where the ancient dialogues with the contemporary and the masterpieces of the past are juxtaposed with those made with the technologies of the future.
