Scatenata // Group Show curated by Alba Cappellieri
Palazzo delle Stelline, Corso Magenta 61, Milan
With ‘Scatenata’ exhibition Milan celebrates an essential tool of the jewellery
It might represent eternal love and all the other good stuff about human connection: the eternity of the circle linked, without beginning or end, to other circles. And it also might express intense feelings like oppression, imprisonment and pain. In short, the chain is a perfect symbol for the paradox that is life. But in jewellery, chains have always had a coveted place. This timeless element is now celebrated by a ‘Scatenata’: a special exhibition curated by Alba Cappellieri and running at the Stelline Foundation from the next Monday 21 February till 5 March. With 150 exemplary jewels made by craftsmen, artists and designers, the exhibition shows how a simple functional element can give life to extraordinary jewellery, in which creativity and innovation come together.
