Gianmaria Buccellati Foundation A CENTURY OF GOLDSMITH’S ART GIANMARIA BUCCELLATI

The extraordinary jewelry creations made by the famous international fashion house and its masters. This book illustrates a century of the history of goldsmith art through the treasures of the Buccellati Foundation designed by Mario and Gianmaria Buccellati, heirs of the illustrious Italian tradition which flourished during the Renaissance. It was following the Renaissance canons that Mario Buccellati, defined by Gabriele d’Annunzio as the “prince of goldsmiths,” created his works, reinterpreting them in a very personal, unique, and easily recognizable way. To him should be given credit for having made known the “style Buccellati,” a myth appreciated by members of the ruling houses, by popes, and by intellectuals.

Gianmaria Buccellati (Milan, 1929), following in his father’s footsteps, has been able to look with great interest to the various artistic expressions of antiquity, the Renaissance, the Baroque, and Rococo art that represent for him an inexhaustible source of inspiration which draw on motifs and themes to rework and to be applied to different types of precious artifacts.

For the greater part of the three hundred models in this volume, Paolo Venini had recourse to the traditional Murano techniques, of which he gave a refined and innovative interpretation. The volume also documents the contribution of the artists who worked with him intermittently between the 1930s and the 1950s. Two hundred and fifty glass pieces tell the story of collaborations with Tyra Lundgren, Gio Ponti, Piero Fornasetti, Eugène Berman, and Riccardo Licata, but also the Americans Ken Scott and Charles Lin Tissot. To them must be added the architects Massimo Vignelli and Tobia Scarpa, and the Norwegian designer Grete Korsmo. Marino Barovier is considered one of the greatest experts of glass art.
