Jewelers Cazzaniga are based in Rome, Italy and have been producing all handmade jewelry with traditional finely detailed craftsmanship since opening their doors in 1929. Their highly artistic jewelry is quite popular among celebrity such as royalty and aristocracy. They received an order from the British royal Household in 1940 and presented original 3-piece chalice set to Pope John Paul II in 1994.
In this exhibition, 70 works representing Cazzaniga's works that are sublime expressions of the "Baroque" art form that spread all over the world from its roots in Rome will be on display. These pieces are all one of a kind, each exhibiting unique decorative character and design that incorporate the Byzantine and Roman Rennaisance styles, bold use of jewels and exquisite metalwork. Works by the first generation Georgio Cazzaniga as well as father-son collaborative with the second generation Paolo Cazzaniga will be shown along with production documentation.
