BASTIONI DI PORTA VENEZIA | Corso di Porta Venezia 63, Milano
24th – 27th October 2019 | 10 am – 6 pm
A 20-year visual journey through his work: jewellery, images, art and books. This is his first trip to Milano as a jeweller, and he wants to present a visual journey of how his work has evolved over the years, his first collections where war, violence and religion was omnipresent. Artistic pieces he created after two-and-half years in a lost town in Germany. His discovery of precious stones and the way he decided to carve them. Some images of the commercial work that allows him to live from this wonderful craft. Finally, his work as a curator and creator of jewellery books though the pages of the five books he has published so far.
ABOUT BASTIONI DI PORTA VENEZIA
In 1600 the Porta Orientale (today Porta Venezia) was placed to the north in the walls of the Spanish walls that had been built between 1548 and 1562, by order of Ferrante I Gonzaga, at the time governor of the city for Carlo V. The perimeter of the walls extended for about eleven kilometers and was protected by a mighty wall with towers and lunettes connected by bastions. The tract, which today we know with the name of Bastioni di Porta Venezia, was then called Bastioni di San Dionigi.
