ARTS | Bulgari Exhibit In Rome Features “La Dolce Vita” – Era Jewels

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – Glamorous jewelry and vintage fashion from “La dolce Vita” era are the star attractions of Bulgari’s new exhibition in Rome.

The exhibition “Bvlgari, the story, the dream” includes the diamond-and-sapphire sautoir necklace that Hollywood star Richard Burton gave Elizabeth Taylor during their stormy love affair.

The exhibition is hosted in two historical palazzos, Palazzo Venezia and Castel Sant’Angelo.

Palazzo Venezia tells the brand’s history, beginning with founding by Greek silversmith Sotirio Bulgari. The glamour comes in at Castel Sant’Angelo, where the “Hollywood and the Tiber” sections features jewels owned by legendary actresses including Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobridgida and Audrey Hepburn.

The installations also features vintage haute couture pieces from the collection of Cecilia Matteuci Lavarini, with items from Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Schiaparelly.

The show runs until Nov.3.
