The event aims to enhance the contemporary jewel, artist’s jewel and the historical goldsmiths to offer the public a high cultural value that exalts the great cultural heritage of the city, connecting the most interesting realities in the field. Protagonists are the jewelry designers and the excellence of the Roman goldsmiths, jewel boutiques, art galleries, academies and associations based in Rome, but upon selection the exhibition would be possible to designers from other Italian cities or from abroad.
Three Roman days of culture and lively beauty through exhibitions, presentations, talks, awards, to live and to revive the Capital thanks to a brand new project for the city where inclusion, connection and joy are keywords. Especially in this complex historical period, the city must reclaim the spaces dedicated to Arts, to Design and to craftsmanship and must return to attract not only for its magnificent historical vestige but also for the immense heritage in the field of artistic jewel. Giving life to such an important event for the city of Rome is a great challenge and a great responsibility , which takes on new values and a renewed creative impetus today.
The RJW event is created by Architect Monica Cecchini, director and project curator. The selection of the realities involved is due to the curatorship of goldsmith artist Emanuele Leonardi and Bianca Cappello jewelry historian and critic. Journalist Jonathan Giustini will moderate one of the scheduled events. Marketing and press communication project is managed by the consultant Eugenia Gadaleta.
