Craftsmanship, Heritage, Innovation and Sustainability are the values that stand at the heart of the exhibition Crafting the Future: Stories of Craftsmanship and Innovation by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana with the support of the Italian Ministry of Economic Development and ICE. The project sees the active involvement of Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani together with Sara Maino, Federico Poletti and Luca Stoppini. The exhibition brings together a number of companies that operate in different product categories but share the same values and are able to effectively combine them to develop unique products.

The jewelry table displays the work of five talented jewelry designers that according to Artemest team combine perfectly craftsmanship, innovation and sustainability.

Ilenia Corti Vernissage

Ilenia Corti, is a fashion accessories designer born in a family of jewelers that dedicated their life to the creation of unique works of art since 1969. Having collaborated with different high luxury maisons worldwide, in 2010, Ilenia Corti launches Vernissage. The project finds its inspiration in the tension between a dream vision, childlike vitality and the pragmatism of the adult world. Vernissage jewelry collections are an invitation to assist to the show of frozen nature in its vital tension, an image fading in time. Each jewel crystallized into a fragment of this fragile and mysterious universe. The brand has a strong relationship with craftsmanship and with the ancient tradition of Italian jewelry, being entirely handmade in Italy by expert craftsmen according to the traditional rules of high jewelry.

Fabio Cammarata

Fabio Renato Cammarata was born in Caltanissetta, in a family with generations of experience in creating jewelry. In 1989, he moves to Milan and having worked with some of the most prestigious names in Italian fashion, in 1994, he launches his namesake brand. Fabio Cammarata has an innate love for material and unconventional sensitivity and he is fond of experimenting with metals to remove their “immobility”. Yellow, white and pink gold, become precious fabrics. Metals are skillfully combined to produce the effect of light silk, the reflection effect of taffeta and the transparency of fine lace. Volumes become a form of architecture around the object. Fabio Cammarata jewels are a representation of Made in Italy jewelry craftsmanship and are exhibited in prestigious museums worldwide.
