The extraordinary jewelry made by the famous international fashion house and its masters. An Italian story.
This book illustrates a century in the history of goldsmith art through the treasures of the Buccellati Foundation designed by Mario and Gianmaria Buccellati, heirs to the illustrious Italian tradition which flourished during the Renaissance. By following the Renaissance canons Mario Buccellati, defined by Gabriele d'Annunzio as the "prince of goldsmiths", created his works, reinterpreting them in a very personal, unique and easily recognizable way. He deserves credit for having made the "Buccellati style" famous around the world, appreciated by members of the ruling houses, by popes and by intellectuals.
