The evolution of the body-jewellery relationship in the field of artistic research and innovation, in contrast to the usual perception of jewellery as decoration or fashion accessory.
In research jewellery, the human body acquires a fundamental role as a source of inspiration and a necessary completion of the creative process.

Le Arti Orafe, jewellery school in Florence organize the second edition of Preziosa contemporary jewellery exhibition.

With a wealth of content and a strong group of partners, Preziosa 2006 is characterized by its focus on the theme of the body (No-Body Decoration), and provides for different exhibition contexts which complement each other: on the one hand, there is an exhibition of the creations of a group of artistic jewellers who are among the foremost representatives of the contemporary international scene, and on the other a wonderful exhibition of jewellery from 19th-century Indian tradition, originating from the Heritage collection of Ganjam, the famous jewellery maison - an opportunity for intercultural and historical comparison.

Friedrich Becker, Bruno Martinazzi, Gerd Rothmann, Gijs Bakker, Christoph Zellweger, Frédéric Braham, Ruudt Peters, Naomi Filmer, David Watkins, Marjorie Schick, Naom Ben–Jacov.

Exhibition curated by Maria Cristina Bergesio.
