About Us

Annarita Vitali


This is the story of my recovery activity of an old warehouse from which I obtained period materials for my collectible bijoux! "In Bologna there are people who have conservation and recovery in their DNA; Annarita Vitali, Graduated in Urban Planning with the Arch.tto Cervellati, who has always been active in the recovery of historic centers, she pursued, working on her own, after a collaboration with the Artistic Events Authority and the Gallery of Modern Art, of recovery, aimed at jewel and its creation. It all started with the purchase of the old warehouse "Furlanetto". Founded in 1925, taken over with all the ancient materials, and revived with the artistic creations of Annarita Vitali in 1998. The company, founded by Romeo Furlanetto in 1925, produced fashion accessories, sold internationally, and collaborated with important stylists, including Valentino, Chanel and Balenciaga of which he was the distributor for Italy ... just to name a few. recoce by Romeo Furlanetto, his wife Maria, a Calestani from Casalmaggiore, took over. This is where the most ancient and important production of jewels, called 'gold mad', was based, as they were not entirely precious, starting from the second half of the 19th century. precisely gold-plated, which had enormous success all over the world. The industries that produced accessories, but not only, became a consortium, continuing the business until the 1970s. All would have been lost if the bijoux museum had not been created in 1998, which tells the story of the evolution of bijoux with over thirty thousand pieces, which follows the evolution of the historical period and its trends very quickly. Just in 1998, when the Furlanetto company in Bologna was closed, Annarita Vitali, after two years of cataloging materials, began producing unique pieces with period materials, precisely those purchased by the aforementioned company. One-of-a-kind thematic artifacts are created in a villa from the early 1900s, all rigorously made with period materials. These are thematic jewels, as recurring themes emerge from the materials and their historicization, moreover not only in the world of jewelry but present in many artistic typologies, architecture, iconography, poetry, literature, etc. The anthropological and social analysis that reveals the reasons for the trends is interesting ... for example shells, the first ornament of man, which cyclically, but one could say seasonally, emerge, heraldry, naturalistic themes, etc. "Annarita Vitali
