Every year Gioielli in Fermento / Jewels in ferment aims to gather all the individual expressions of contemporary jewellery authors in relation to popular passions: wine and territories, looking at this terroir as an ensemble of cultural deep-rooted issues.

The Gioielli in Fermento / Jewels in Ferment project, with its 4th edition in 2014, consists of a competition open to designers and goldsmiths artists, professionals and scholars, and the related exhibit of unique jewellery inspired by a specific theme which is renewed every year in concept related to the world of wine.
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.

Jewels in Ferment 2014 the theme of competition

wearing intensities
wearing the colours of wine
as you can wear sensibilities, identities, mediterranean cultures,
through a piece of contemporary jewellery

This Year we introduce a theme that concerns with the world of colours as a main concept applied to the contemporary jewellery, as a means of expression at all the degrees of intensities, almost a metaphor of all added value as it happens for instance in music in representing the real scale of intensities to perform a composition.
The authors which met our project before know the aim of our suggestion: as for the previous editions, Gioielli in Fermento means to think at a work designed and produced as a unique piece or limited edition jewellery and this year in particular it means to conceive the colour as an instrument of individual expression, material and immaterial simultaneously to commit to the piece the link between each single story and a wider project for the identification of that mediterranean accent such as the culture of wine and our territories may represent.
