The halls of the Museum of Fashion and Applied Arts in Gorizia host the exhibition “Jewel and Project - from flat to three-dimensional” until 6 March 2022. The exhibition recounts the recent design experimentation of Roberto Zanon, professor of Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, with a series of jewels characterized by a design methodology that starts from the cutting of a flat surface to arrive at a significant three-dimensional shape . Forty-three models of jewelry are exhibited, mainly rings, but also a series of necklaces, some bracelets and a pair of earrings, all made using "poor" and "alternative" materials such as cardboard, felt, rubber eva and pva.
Modest objects from the point of view of the value of the material, but exuberant in form and full of meaning for the message that each of them intends to convey. In parallel with the exhibition, the book-catalog is available in the Museum bookshop: "Jewel and Project. Methodological study of the significant topological form "(Cleup). The volume, signed by Roberto Zanon, in addition to introducing the jewels present in the exhibition with a critical comment, is accompanied by a series of interventions by scholars (Bianca Cappello, Paolo Lesti, Giuliano Lombardo, Edoardo Malagigi, Alessandra Zabbeo, Pietro Zennaro) who interacted with the solicitations of the jewels displayed in the exhibition and documented in the book.
