Gianmaria Buccellati Foundation : A Century of Goldsmith's Art
This book illustrates a century of the history of goldsmith art through the treasures of the Buccellati Foundation designed by Mario and Gianmaria Buccellati, heirs of the illustrious Italian tradition which flourished during the Renaissance. It was following the Renaissance canons that Mario Buccellati, defined by Gabriele d'Annunzio as the "prince of goldsmiths," created his works, reinterpreting them in a very personal, unique, and easily recognizable way. To him should be given credit for having made known the "style Buccellati," a goldsmith's myth appreciated by members of the ruling houses, by popes, and by intellectuals.
