"Every year Jewels in Ferment aims to gather the infinitely individual expressions of contemporary jewellery makers in relation to popular themes: wine and territories, looking at this terroir as an ensemble of deep-rooted cultural values and elements.
This 4th edition of Gioielli in Fermento consists of a competition and exhibition of unique pieces of jewellery inspired by a specific theme. The theme this year concerns the world of colours as the main concept at the heart of contemporary jewellery, a means of expressing all degrees of intensity, almost a metaphor for all added value and meaning; like the 'colour' a composer uses in instructing performers on how to play a piece of music.
Colour becomes an instrument of individual expression, both material and immaterial, a way to commit to the pieces of Jewels in Ferment a link between each story and a broader identification of that Mediterranean accent the culture of wine and our territories".
