Intro
Giulia Savino is an Italian contemporary jewelry designer currently based in Turin. After finishing the studies in design at Politecnico di Milano, she got an MFA from Alchimia Jewelry School in Florence, where she was mentored by Belgian designer Nedda El Asmar. For three years, Giulia lived in Cairo, where she contributed to the opening of the Middle East’s first ever jewelry school, set up by the pioneer designer Azza Fahmy – “The Design Studio by Azza Fahmy”. While there, she worked as a teacher and an assistant to the director Estela Saez. At present, her work is focused on the project 1:20.000, a collection of maps in shape of jewels.

Statement

My work takes inspiration from architecture and daily experiences. Starting from anonymous materials I aim to make simple but strongly expressive pieces in which people can identify themselves.
 
My current work is conceived as a never-ending journey across the exploration and analysis of the urban planning, social interaction 
and the contemporary jewelry world.
Each jewel responds to very contemporary needs as mobility and flexibility:  seducing and light objects, taking up very little space and adaptable to different contexts.



1:20.000 Project
Where do we belong? Can we say that a city belongs to us? If so, then we may have it, like an object, taking it with us wherever we go. Crossing the world feeling our identity in constant change.
We often look at the city from up, at the height of the clouds, where everything turns into a grid of lines and geometric shapes...And so, everything looks small and neat, making us believe that we can grab it all and hold it in one hand.
1: 20000 is the creation of that instant when something huge is in our hands in which we have the feeling to be in that place owning that place.
1: 20000 is a compilation of maps, a collection of cities in form of jewels. As "the map is not the territory" but just one of the many possible representations of reality, each jewel is a personal interpretation of the city that takes/loses its shape in the interaction with the body.
1: 20000 is the research of our identity, complex as mazes of streets, in movement as travelers, precious and delicate as jewels
.
 
Shhh!
There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time.
There is always something to see, something to hear. (John Cage)
I seek the silence in the definition of fullness, of architectures, of lights, that enhance listening to silent sounds. I seek the silence in the creation of blankness, of space, of shadows that complete the feeling.
My architecture of silence is intimate, vital, self-perceptive.
