HOMI and Fiera Milano present, at Fondazione Stelline, 150 original jewels inspired by the chain, between function and ornament.

 

With Scatenata! – the exhibition curated by Alba Cappellieri – HOMI pays tribute to the chain, which has always been a key element in jewelry, from ancient times to the present.

 

An itinerary through 150 pieces of jewelry made by artisans, artists, designers and companies, in Italy and abroad, using traditional and innovative, humble and precious, familiar and outlandish materials.

 

The chain, with its many forms and meshes, was one of the first objects in the history of man. Forged with small interlocking rings, it had a function of connection, especially with apparel, but was also a powerful symbol, both of slavery and of freedom, rebellion and power.
