Fabrizio Tridenti presented his new book, on March 14th in Munich at the International Trade Fair. Hard Wear Beauty is a book about the work of Fabrizio Tridenti published by Andy Lim from Darling Publications: Observing Fabrizio Tridenti's more recent works, we notice two dominant features: the first is the use of lines as the basic element for exploring shape, the second is the interest in assemblage of natural materials, from organic juxtaposed shapes to parts made of silver.
Totemic spaces but also unknown mechanisms from another future or world: Fabrizio Tridenti’s jewel sculptures seem dancing Waltzer – to use a reference from Kubrick’s films – like spacecrafts around the orbit of a planet, light and suspended like ballet dancers in a perfect dynamic balance of tension and implosion.
Bianca Cappello

Italy has what could be defined as a “peculiar” situation when it comes to jewellery, in the sense that, as opposed to furniture design and fashion for example, most of the production is very traditional, ….Those fortunate enough to have studied at the School of Padua followed the Masters who taught there and, in most cases, later enjoyed international recognition, but for those who did not, there was no hope, or so it seemed.
Fabrizio Tridenti is living proof that anything is possible. … 
Rita Marcangelo

…There is always something suspended, unsaid, unfinished, to give space to people wearing them, but also to preserve the freedom and poetry of nature, the essence of matter. In the world of contemporary jewellery, specially in Italy, this is quite rare….
