From November 30, 2019 to February 23, 2020, in the prestigious Palazzo Reale in Milan, archival documents, sketches and gouache designs stand alongside pieces from the Van Cleef & Arpels Collection.
The exhibition is curated by Alba Cappellieri, Professor of Jewelry Design at Milan Polytechnic University and Director of the Vicenza Museum of Jewelry and the contemporary scenography is created by American designer Johanna Grawunder.
Drawing from Italo Calvino’s Six Memos for the Next Millennium, Alba Cappellieri chose key concepts through which she interprets the Maison’s creations. The initial section is dedicated to Time, the second one to Love and the third one to Nature.
