TALENTS UNDER 30: ITALIAN STYLE WINS
MARTA D’AMBROSIO, a student at the Istituto Tecnico Professionale Orafo Arezzo (the Arezzo Technical School for Goldsmiths) won the TALENTS category with her “Luce è vita” necklace. Composed of a luxuriant radial element with an opal cabochon in the center from which smooth rays of yellow gold alternate with those of white gold studded with bright stones of various colors, according to the jury, “it is a typical example of jewelry that characterizes the most refined examples of Italian Style”.
Thanks to the collaboration of manufacturing partners in the Arezzo district, the winner will be able to see her creative idea become a reality.
The new category for aspiring goldsmiths under 30 involved three classes from the Master in Jewelry History, Design and Marketing of the University of Siena – Campus of Arezzo, the Margaritone Technical
Professional Institute and the Liceo Statale Piero della Francesca, both from Arezzo, for a total of 15 designs, on display during the four days of the show. A new entry that aims to support new talents and encourage direct contact with companies in order to make it easier to enter the sector and embark on a professional career.
