Description:

Encouraging the study of the jewellery as a academic discipline and analysingit how a that dialogue with the different arts and the artists in an international context and in a chronological frame that achieves since the mediaeval period until the individualised jewels of the contemporary authors are the aims of the Congress.

The attention will be focus on the analysis of the jewel in relation to the visual arts and the fields of artistic creation: since the jewels were painted in the Romanesque painting, the Gothic altarpieces, the embroideries and the mediaeval manuscripts until the pictorial and sculptural values of the modern jewels. Moreover, it will be study the jewel as a diffusing vehicle of the artistic currents or as a transversal path for part of the artists unconnected to the world of the jewellery, and the jewel understood as a expression of an artistic universe in miniature, beyond their superficial concept and of an object of luxury, reflection of the magnificence of the materials. The collecting of the jewellery, private and public, will deserve a special attention.
