Intro
The 10th edition of Gioielli in Fermento Award is devided to part 1 and part 2. Work will be selected by Jury team regarding the theme “evolution & refinement”. The award will be given after Part 2 selection during the celebration exhibition in May 2021.
Gioielli in Fermento was born 11 years ago, transforming over time the original theme of its Mediterranean background and atmospheres, but still keeping the ethical and geographic link. The collection chosen by the jury for 2020 appears in a globally suspended time. The pandemic that broke out in the first months of the year indelibly marks a dividing line in the activity of each one of us. PRE and POST “corona”. The 2020 theme “evolution & refinement” requires reflection and suggests a new level of research. To emphasize this time of transition, we decided to record the path between what “was” until the explosion of the pandemic, the dangers of contagion, the paralysis of all activities and the confinement – called the PRE – and what implied rethinking our lives, our reactions, our roles, from then on – called the POST –.
