Buccellati Teases with its Upcoming ‘The Prince of Goldsmiths, Rediscovering the Classics’ Exhibition

In the heart of Venice, where every cobblestone whispers tales of old, Buccellati unveils a spectacle of luxury with a captivating exhibition set to unfold. Titled ‘The Prince of Goldsmiths, Rediscovering the Classics’, this retrospective promises to be a feast for the senses, inviting attendees to embark on a journey through the captivating world of fine jewellery and silverware.

Crafted and produced by the esteemed Milan-based Balich Wonder Studio, this extraordinary showcase is curated by none other than Italian scholar, author, and fashion professor Alba Cappellieri. Paying great attention to detail, Cappellieri has carefully selected pieces that not only epitomise the mastery of Mario Buccellati but also illuminate the brand’s unwavering commitment to transcending time through the art of jewellery-making.

The exhibition’s title pays homage to a designation bestowed upon founder Buccellati by his friend, the esteemed 20th-century poet Gabriele d’Annunzio – ‘The Prince of Goldsmiths,” a testament to his unparalleled talent in crafting timeless masterpieces. Now, decades later, Buccellati remains in redefining and rediscovering the profound value of the ‘classic,’ viewing it as a beacon capable of surpassing temporal boundaries and attaining a legacy that withstands the test of time.

From April 18 to June 18, 2024, the doors of Oficine 8000 in Venice (Fondamenta S. Biagio, 800) will open to host the mesmerising tapestry of Buccellati’s legacy. As attendees wander through the exhibition’s meticulously curated halls, they will be transported through time, witnessing not only the evolution of Buccellati’s craftsmanship but also the significant events that have shaped the maison over its three generations of family ownership.

Divided into four evocative themes, the exhibition offers a comprehensive exploration of Buccellati’s rich history. From the symbolic representation of the Buccellati family’s artistic lineage, embodied by the iconic butterfly motif, to the elegant gallantries and precious accessories that have defined the brand’s sense of timeless elegance, each section offers a unique perspective into the brand’s enduring legacy.

This exquisite exhibition will not merely be a showcase of luxury craftsmanship but a celebration of artistry, heritage, and timeless beauty.
