In concurrence with the annual Art-Verona Fair, more than twenty brooches by Italian and international artists made of unconventional and unusual materials in addition to metals, will be displayed in shop windows in the old town center of Verona from October 8, 2013 to October 20, 2013. These artifacts can be considered art works thanks to their significant emotional and intellectual contents. The focus of the event will be the concurrent exhibition “Enchanted Dialogues: Brooches in Tribute of Verona”, held at the deconsecrated church of San Pietro in Archivolto, next to the Cathedral of Verona. Overall “Brooching Verona” is a rare opportunity for citizens and tourists to approach the world, little-known yet deserving more attention, of ” contemporary jewels.” In addition to that, it contributes to create a lively and vibrant atmosphere in the historical streets of Verona.

ENCHANTED DIALOGUES:Brooches in tribute of Verona
The exhibition “Enchanted Dialogues:Brooches in Tribute of Verona” will be held in the deconsecrated church of San Pietro in Achivolto next to Verona’s Cathedral , from October 8 -20 2013 Curated by Nunzia De Feo and organized by associazione Nurò under the patronage of Verona’s Town Council and Verona’s Province with Cantina Castelnuovo del Garda’s and Agriform’s contribution, it has been set-up thanks to the foresight and generosity of Verona’s Cathedral. Given the pressing economic stagnation, Monsignor Antonio Finardi, Verona’s Cathedral Parish Priest, aware that having a job is inseparable from a human being’s dignity, asserts: “It is important to encourage and be close to those who are actively involved in experimenting and exploring new possibilities and solutions”.
As the title suggests, the show invites visitors to engage with the artifacts displayed in intimate and spontaneous conversations inside of which old memories, disjointed emotions and forgotten anecdotes can emerge.
Three are the thematic areas that constitute the main focus of the event:
- Architecture of Verona: monuments and dynamism
- Verona in the past: customs and cultural traditions
- Paths: growing in “Hope”
Participants – Invited to deal with the ambitious project are some leading figures in the international contemporary jewelry world next to young talents from different countries outside of Europe, too.
