Roma, 15 November 2014.We are pleased to announce that this year we will again be exhibiting at the Desideri Preziosi (Precious Desires) show, now in its 22st edition, which will take place at Palazzo Valentini from 28 November to 8 December 2014. This year, the goldsmiths and silversmiths have been asked to design their own jewellery inspired by Ancient Rome, thus rendering homage to the Imperator Augustus marking the 200th anniversary of his death, and to the fascinating remains of the “Domus Romane” under Palazzo Valentini. This year, for the first time, there will be a contest to award the first three best interpretations thanks to the vote of visitors and a jury panel.
An occasion for visitors to admire the creations of Rome's master goldsmiths and silversmiths, in whom the knowledge of ancient traditions, passed from generation to generation, is combined with avant-garde techniques and innovative designs.
Opening Time: Friday 28th from 16:00 to 20:00; From Saturday 29th to Monday 8th December from 10:00 to 19:00
Venue: Palazzo Valentini, Via IV Novembre 119/A, 00187 Roma http://goo.gl/woaZ8n Web site: www.desideripreziosi.rm.camcom.it
