Intro
The Gioielli in Fermento / Jewels in Ferment project, with its 5th edition in 2015, consists in a competition and the related exhibition of unique jewellery, inspired this year by the theme #unconventionaljewellery.
A competition open to designers, artists, goldsmiths and craftsmen, scholars and professionals, for an unreleased piece of jewellery inspired by the following theme:
#unconventionaljewellery
substantial | spiritual | precious | affordable

Every year Gioielli in Fermento aims to gather the infinitely individual expressions of contemporary jewellery authors in relation to popular passions: wine and territories, following the way to an intimate tale around the wine and looking at its terroir as an ensemble of cultural deeprooted issues to be inspired and to be involved in.

The Gioielli in Fermento / Jewels in Ferment project, with its 5th edition in 2015, consists of a competition open to designers and art jewellers, professionals and scholars, and the related exhibit of a unique piece of jewellery inspired by a specific theme which is renewed every year in concept related to the world of wine. From this edition onwards a section dedicated to Students is established.

The resulting exhibition is hosted at Torre Fornello Winery which dedicated its impressive spaces to the Vineyard of Arts and has the opportunity to be presented during the year of edition in other cultural contexts related to contemporary jewellery or exploiting synergy with events related to the world of wine in the role of representative of Italian excellence. The Vineyard of Arts is a wider cultural project promoted by Enrico Sgorbati who, as a collector, opens it to all the languages of contemporary art, and every year it offers the possibility to the artists to collaborate, experiment, discuss their work in the context of the estate of Torre Fornello on the Colli Piacentini (hills in Emilia region). At its core, Gioielli in Fermento is the event dedicated to the deepening of the research on contemporary jewellery.

The theme of the year 2015 edition focuses on the substantial value of jewellery to be considered as food for the soul, able to satisfy new expressive needs in the contemporary age, both for the jewellery makers and for their audience who feels its attraction and choose to wear a kind of un-conventional jewellery. It could be a unique piece or a multiple from a limited edition, though still unpublished, with a direct and strong relation between the maker and the observer and wearer. So this is the adopted comparison with wine tasting to help people choose a wine / a piece of jewellery / satisfying a balance between their own values in substantial and spiritual, precious and affordable terms.

In addition to this, some research item might be related to one of the design themes of the further project "Non di solo pane / Not Just Bread" (*) which might mark this statement with a body ornament either inspired to this kind of psychological nourishment.

#foodforYourSoul #unconventionaljewellery #substantialjewellery (tags on social networks)
well, this will be the inspiration of Gioielli in Fermento 2015

(*) The project "Non di solo pane/Not Just Bread" (www.sblunondisolopane.tumblr.com) is indipendent from the jewellery competition. Collaboration between the two projects will lead to the selection of some pieces from Gioielli in Fermento which will result the most interesting and linked to one of the 5 themes considered in their announcement (www.sblunondisolopane.tumblr.com) and will be awarded with a special mention "Non di solo pane/Not Just Bread" and gain parallel focus in events promoted by Sblu_spazioalbello . It is up to the participant artist to develop his/her research and work within the proposed themes. The assignements will be decided at the incontestable discretion of the jury.
