Rinascimento “Re-birth” project rised from the idea of Renaissance (Rinascimento) itself and my personal renaissance “re-birth”, both started in Florence…
Whatever they may say, I am burning today, with the fire I started to be reborn.*
One of the main principles of Renaissance was the admiration for antiquity. Ancient myths, figures, art, architecture and philosophy were always the inspriation. This necklace is designed and produced to point out to this perspective and the soul of Renaissance.
Inspiration of the work is Botticelli’s painting “La Primavera” (Allegory of Spring). Various interpretations for the painting and the figures have been set forth, but generally agreed that it is “an elaborate mythological allegory of the fertility of the world”. The pastoral scenery is also elaborate, there are 500 identified plant species depicted in the painting, with about 190 different flowers. La Primavera necklace’s structure is based on charecteristic Renaissance decoration. Over this base, it has been placed different types of flowers from the different seasons as a reference to the painting.
Rinascimento Pendant is the only piece that has been designed with the form of Renaissance term’s jewellery style.
