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 theme of the year 2015 edition focused 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 It could be a unique piece or a multiple from a limited edition, though still unpublished, with a direct and strong relation between the maker and the observer and wearer.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.
