Intro
"Orizzonti d'Autore" is a biennial dedicated to author's jewelry, hosted in the halls of the Civic Museum of Asolo, which since this first edition aims to create an international network and a cultural and enriching exchange between participating artists, enthusiasts and experts in the field.
 
The objective of the event, conceived by curator Thereza Pedrosa and realized thanks to the active collaboration of the Pro Loco of Asolo, the Municipal Culture Department, the Civic Museum of Asolo and the precious support of Archeometra, is to explore the boundaries of creativity, encourage international dialogue and inspire visitors. Among the scheduled events there are a group exhibition, a retrospective dedicated to a great Master who will be awarded a lifetime achievement award and several conferences. This first edition includes the participation of 24 artists from 5 continents, many of whom will be present at the opening on May 7, 2022.

Orizzonti d'Autore: Between Visions and Matter
The group exhibition "Between Visions and Matter", hosted in the halls of the Museo Civico di Asolo, presents the works of 23 artists, invited by the curator Thereza Pedrosa, who have distinguished themselves for their artistic research and whose works are present in the collections of the most important museums in the world, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Establishment of the Archeometra Lifetime Achievement Award
The institution of a Lifetime Achievement Award for art jewelry is born from the desire to celebrate an artist who has devoted his creative strength and artistic research to the field of art jewelry, contributing significantly to the development and enrichment of the sector during a lifetime dedicated to art. Thanks to the precious support of Archeometra and the hospitality of the Municipality of Asolo, Orizzonti d'Autore is honored to establish the Archeometra Lifetime Achievement Award for Art Jewelry. In this first edition the award is assigned to Maestro Giampaolo Babetto, to celebrate his career of over 5 decades, his irreplaceable contribution to the education of new generations of jewelry artists and his worldwide fame as one of the greatest masters of art jewelry.
An extraordinary anthological exhibition will retrace the 55-year career of Giampaolo Babetto, hosted in the Sala della Ragione of Asolo, with over 60 works including jewelry, silverware and furniture.
