Have you ever tried to hold a piece of marble
in your hands? This noble material
, with its heavenly colors and fluid grains, besides being of incomparable aesthetic beauty, is forceful and pleasant to touch. So why not use it as a special gem
for making jewelry? After all, the word 'marble' (from the Greek mármaros) actually means ‘shining stone
’! The trend
seems to have already won over several jewelers - we already mentioned it last January here
- and has now been mirrored in Carrara
, which is currently bustling with a full calendar of events
aimed at promoting this great natural heritage 'donated' by the majestic mountains that irradiate a special light. Among the top events was a show entitled 'Unexpected Lightness'
, held last Saturday, June 2nd
, in the suggestive setting of the Fantiscritti quarries
: an exceptional location offered by Erich Lucchetti, where, on a sunny afternoon, fashion, dance and design
intertwined to reveal a new interpretation of Carrara marble
that is as captivating as it is contemporary.
