On 6 September 2018, “BVLGARI. Tribute to Femininity. Magnificent Roman Jewels” exhibition opening ceremony took place at the Cathedral Square of the Moscow Kremlin. This retrospective exhibition project present pieces of high jewellery art by the world-known Italian Maison BVLGARI, which history dates back over a hundred and thirty years.

Among participants of the ceremony was General Director of the Moscow Kremlin Museums Elena Gagarina, Bvlgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin, FirstCounsellor for Cultural Affairs at the Italian Embassy to Russia Walter FERRARA and Director of the First European Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Alexey Paramonov.

“Preparing this exhibition together with our colleagues, the idea was not just to show amazing in its beauty jewellery pieces by Bvlgari to our visitors, but to demonstrate a specific character of these works, meaning, that jewellery played an esthetical role as well as social in the lives of 20th-century women”, said General Director of the Moscow Kremlin Museums Elena Gagarina.

The reflection of ideas of feminism in Bvlgari works became one of the central themes of the exposition. It is revealed in collections made during the 20th century. On display, one can see jewellery pieces by Bvlgari that belonged to such film stars of the 1960s as Elizabeth Taylor, Anna Magnani and others.
