The Ambassador of Italy to the State of Qatar, Alessandro Prunas said: “The Ambassador of Italy to the State of Qatar, Alessandro Prunas said: “We are very proud to display in Qatar a unique variety of jewels revealing how Italian creativity has evolved according to fashion trends and social transformations. Made in Italy jewellery has been able to combine over the years innovative design and sophisticated craftsmanship, a successful combination which continues to be the secret behind the creation of unique ornaments reflecting the changes of a culture constantly in motion. Jewels are artworks turned into everyday fashion items inspiring ideas and dreams! We are glad that Italian jewellery is very much appreciated in Qatar. Italian designers and brands are eager to cooperate with the flourishing sector of local fashion artists to share their knowledge and know-how. Special thanks to our local partners, who contributed to make this event happen: W Doha Hotel for the out-of-the-ordinary sense of hospitality and

A truly immersive exhibition not to be missed. We encourage everyone to visit ART29 to get a true taste of Italian fine jewellery.”

Presents 200 fashion Italian jewels, dating back to the so called period “La Dolce Vita” during the ‘50s and continuing through the Prêt-à-Porter in the ‘80s and the Minimalism in the ‘90s until the New Millennium fashion. This extensive collection represents the esthetic mirror of society, showing the transformation of styles and costumes, ambitions and achievements of women, as well as the evolution of shapes, materials and new production techniques. It tells a typical “Italian story” that once again enhances creativity, craftsmanship, design, art, technology, beauty and innovation of our Country”.
