The Antica Roma collection rediscovers the atmospheres, icons and symbols of imperial Rome.
A Collection of bronze and travertine jewels inspired by ancient mosaics and coins.
Pendants, rings, earrings and bracelets, expertly modeled with wax casting technique, are the protagonists of this innovative collection.
For him, for her, for an unforgettable gift.
The collection was exhibited at the bookshop of the archaeological area of the ancient Domitian Stadium, today’s Piazza Navona, and subsequently proposed in the bookshop of the Scuderie del Quirinale, on the occasion of the exhibition dedicated to Raffaello Sanzio.
The Infinity collection originates from a collaboration between the goldsmith Ivan Barbato and the mosaicist Fabio Bordi, and proposes the theme of ancient Rome.
The union between these two ancient decorative arts is suggestive.
These jewels made of bronze, adorned with marble tiles and Venetian enamels, seem to belong to an ancient past.
The star of this collection is the classic medallion-shaped pendant.
The ornamental motif in the center is made of bronze, coral or lava stone, while the decorations at the edges are made up of micro mosaic fragments.
At the customer’s request, the models in this collection can also be made with precious materials such as noble metals, gems and ancient marbles.
The collection bears the signature of the two artisans and the symbol of infinity refers to Rome, the Eternal City.
This is a typical combination of different techniques used by the goldsmith, combining a first modeling made on wax to obtain the face of the panther, subsequently obtained in metal by lost wax casting and, working the same with the fretwork technique, obtaining a small tulle .
In fact, the panther’s cheeks and forehead contain, in a delicate harmony, the tulle, a satin finish obtained by a burin and the light of the diamonds placed in the eyes, together with the fancy ones that adorn the head; from here then winds the soft color dictated by the Angelo Skin coral which gives further refinement to the earrings.
