90 jewellery artists from around the world present a ring, based on the theme of remembrance.
Fabrizio Tridenti:

Old silver cutlery sets through their silver identification marks.
The memory of objects intended for being melted.
The memory of a real experience.
The memory of having belonged to…
The memory of skills passed down over time.
The last evidence of commercial objects, which are out-of-fashion: maybe the most important aspect for contemporary society, as against meaning, aesthetics, functionality, quality, and personal taste.
Marks obscure and confuse the identity of the ring, and upset the normal order of things and values, but they keep the memory of objects full of stories, affection, and sense of belonging.

Lucia Massei:

Remember ring: Senna
We are still there. In front of the river. The yellow leafs are floating in the water. The journey has already begun. One way ticket...
