The photo shoot not only showcased the beauty of the jewelry but also the skill of Francesco Rotolo, a goldsmith artisan from Scanno, and Federica Silvani. Their collaboration is the beating heart of “Il Gioiello del Tombolo”. Francesco, with his deep experience gained working in major goldsmith companies in Vicenza and New York, brings with him a heritage of knowledge and techniques. Federica, on the other hand, with her background in philosophy and her talent in tombolo, contributes a unique and refined style, reflected in each piece created.
The photographic series captures the essence of these exclusive jewels, demonstrating how the tombolo, a traditional lace-making technique with historical origins in the 16th century, can be transformed into modern and sophisticated works of art. This technique, which found a particular expression in Scanno, is reinterpreted in a contemporary key, giving life to jewelry pieces that are true masterpieces.
Additionally, the innovative “Perforated Metal Anchoring System for Textile Works” patented by “Il Gioiello del Tombolo”, allows for the harmonious union of tombolo lace with precious metals like gold and silver, creating pieces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also practical and durable.
The photo shoot at 53 Wooster St was not just a display of the talent and innovation of “Il Gioiello del Tombolo”, but also a tribute to the timeless beauty of tombolo, an art that continues to amaze and inspire. With this event, “Il Gioiello del Tombolo” not only celebrates its art and history but also projects itself into the future, demonstrating how respect for traditions can go hand in hand with innovation and modernity.
