Fornello di Ziano Piacentino (PC)

The fifth edition of the Gioielli in Fermento Contest of 2015, is aimed at designers, professionals, emerging jewelry designers and contemporary gold artists, to create a unique jewelry piece, inspired by a specific theme that is selected each year in the context of the world of wine.

Beginning this year there will also be a special category dedicated to schools of this art. This year’s theme is #unconventionaljewelry- the contemporary ornament #materiale#spirituale#prezioso#quotidiano.

The Vigna delle Arti (Vine of the Arts) is a cultural project on the various interpretations of contemporary art to which Torre Fornello has dedicated a great deal of attention during the past few years: each year the artists are invited to experiment, exchange views and express themselves.

Principally, "Gioielli in fermento" is an event dedicated to widening research for contemporary jewelry. With the creation of unique jewelry pieces, each artist is confronted with a popular theme, transforming it into an intimate story about the planet of wine and its terroir, seen as a combination of elements and deeply rooted cultural values in which they can involve themselves and from which they can draw inspiration.

This year the event will have the collaboration of the design project “Non di solo pane”... “Not just bread”. (SBLU_spazioalbello project, “Non di solo pane per EXPO 2015” with the patronage of EXPO 2015, ADI Lombardy and AIAP), in which works will be included that, in personal ornaments, gather analogous interpretations of this message which is a metaphor for psychological nutrition. An international jury of world experts in the design and jewelry world will evaluate and award the participants.

The two winners (one from the school section and one from the Vigna delle Arti) will also participate in the international event Joya di Barcellona, where they will present their personal collection.

Date: the event will be held from May 08, 2016 to May 22, 2016

Event timetable: from Monday to Sunday, following the opening hours of the Azienda Vitivinicola Torre Fornello.
