il progetto | concept
Gioielli in Fermento was born 10 years ago, transforming over time the original theme of its Mediterranean background and atmospheres, but still keeping the ethical and geographic link. The collection chosen by the jury for 2020 appears in a globally suspended time. The pandemic that broke out in the first months of the year indelibly marks a dividing line in the activity of each one of us.
ANTE and POST
The 2020 theme evolution & refinement¹ requires reflection and suggests a new level of research. To emphasize this time of transition, we decided to record the path between what “was” until the explosion of the pandemic, the dangers of contagion, the paralysis of all activities and the confinement – called the ANTE –
and what implied rethinking our lives, our reactions, our roles, from then on – after, called the POST –

la ricerca | research
The challenge of the ANTE | POST comparison is a further evolution of the Fermento project.
Observing the ANTE (Part I) and the POST (Part II) new meanings will emerge according to the experimental jewel.
Covid19 determined a fracture or opportunity, but not only or not necessarily that. It probably enhanced a need to recompose, join, develop the search for a complementary or juxtaposed work, by evolution or revolution, dissolution or reconstruction. Or simply looking for balance. Our body-ornaments will interpret a need, a relief, a message, an escape, a gratification, a memory: personal amulets of a new era.
¹evolution & refinement
Using the words of wine, literally, it should be “evolution and aging“, meaning the refinement and reached maturity of a wine through time.
