"Dialoghi. Italia-Giappone. Gioielli Contemporanei"

After stops in Tokyo, Kofu, Livorno and Cisano San Felice del Benaco, the city of Padua is home to the creations of eighty artists, forty Japanese members of JJDA (Japan Jewellery Designers Association) and forty Italian members of the AGC (Association of Contemporary Jewellery). The project from which was born the exhibition "Dialoghi. Italia-Giappone. Gioielli Contemporanei" has been launched in Tokyo at Institute of Italian Culture in July 2015, the year in which JJDA celebrated its 50th anniversary and the 10th since the founding of AGC.

The "Dialogues" between members of the two associations has bounced from one part of the globe by sending images related to mutual artistic culture, suggesting the jewelry creations, through shapes, colors and ideas of each country establishing that at the end of the exhibition, the various participants would have made a gift to each other of the various works. A visit to this exhibition is therefore a unique opportunity to savor the view of art and the Western world analyzed by artists of the Rising Sun and the interpretation of Italian artists in the comparison of Japanese culture through the implementation of contemporary research jewellery .
