To start the exhibiting program of Gioielli in Fermento 2017, a special preview dinner was set by the Michelin starred chef Isa Mazzocchi at Torre Fornello, an historical winery based on the hills of Emilia Romagna region: jewels on exhibit and literally in your dish. A selected anthology of works from all editions of the studio art jewellery international competition inspire the exclusive five-course dinner paired with wines of Torre Fornello and gave the chance to one lucky diner to win a unique work, the ring “Almost” by Gigi Mariani. Master Collection is the Special Edition of the exhibition that will alternate with the new biennial edition of the international competition Gioielli in Fermento.

Eliana Negroni, who conceived and developed the project Gioielli in Fermento since the beginning in 2011, and Enrico Sgorbati, fine winemaker and its decisive supporter, involved an excellent personality of these lands, Isa Mazzocchi, chef and ambassador of delicious food, within the experience of combining in one evening three arts: the jewel, the food, the wine; each one in its author’s contemporary vision.

Diners brought into a sensorial experience of these three dimensions, special made by the directors of the evening, to be imprinted in their own memory of taste. “Studio jewelry”, as it is often called, experiences a different way to interact with the audience, playing on the fascinating or provocative factors, on curiosity and storytelling. These are the main features Gioielli in Fermento competition always highlights giving a special identity to the Torre Fornello Award, assigned by an international jury of experts and supported by a network of institutions related to art and design.

The quality of work of the winery is enhanced by the supporting role in the culture of its environment and the world of wine: recently a special prize for Italian wineries has been awarded by the GoWine Guide to the Torre Fornello & Gioielli in Fermento paired cultural project. On May 7th at 4pm the exhibition opened at Torre Fornello with the announcement of the next call for the competition and awards in 2018. Gioielli in Fermento 2017 program will also present a series of meetings reserved to art jewellers and designers with important guests (including Maria Rosa Franzin, goldsmith artist and teacher from the School of Padua and Charon Kransen, lecturer and expert of international art jewelry from NewYork).
