A Lucire exclusive

In a whirlwind week, two extraordinary events occurred in northern Italy, both under the stewardship of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo.
   On the night of Wednesday, September 10 at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Torino, a travelling exhibition showcasing the finalists to this year’s Prix Pictet launched. This year’s theme, Consumption, introduced by Pictet’s Stephen Barber at a gala reception, themes the world’s most prestigious annual photography prize. You can visit this important show at the Fondazione’s impressive and expansive space, a converted factory, through October 12.
   The following Sunday, September 14, Divine, an installation focusing on highlights from the 20th century costume jewellery collection of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, opened at Ca’D’oro in Venezia. A gathering of local luminaries and international guests witnessed the official launch of the show. Over 400 objects notable for their history and elegance are displayed in the Galleria Georgio Franchetti, remaining on exhibit through January 11, 2015.
   In her exhibition notes, Sandretto Re Rebaudegno says she first developed interest in accessible costume jewellery designs because they represent a cultural heritage that ‘brings us back to hard times and great social change.’ But you will find they are also remarkable for their craftsmanship and inherent beauty.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor
