125 years of Bulgari jewellery on display in Rome

The historic Italian brand of Bulgari will be on display from May 22nd to September 13th for a 125-year anniversary celebrated in the event “Between eternity and history: 1884-2009″ at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome.
About 500 jewelled objects are on display for the Bulgari anniversary, including watches and precious stones from the Bulgari vintage collection, generally kept by the company itself, or coming from private owners who have donated their pieces for the few months.

The jewells are the central focus of the exhibition, but will appear with a rich collection of documents including the best in Bulgari design, drawings and photos from different eras.
The photos include famous artists, aristocrats and renowned customers of Bulgari jewells over the years.

For glamour fans, there is an entire section dedicated to Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” and its characters, such as Anna Magnani and Gina Lollobrigida; and another section dedicated entirely to Elizabeth Taylor and 16 pieces of extraordinary value, which recount the love story with Richard Burton who gave Taylor a diamon and emerald Bulgari brooch at more than 18 carats.
