Art and architecture within the context of ancient and modern Rome is the core of the exhibition hosted in the space of Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. This has been a source of inspiration to the designers of this firm of Italian jewellers throughout its history.
The exhibition brings together more than 140 pieces of jewellery from Bulgari’s Heritage Collection and from a number of private collections. These are displayed alongside around 30 paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs by different European artists who have depicted the city of Rome in their works, including Canaletto, Gaspar van Wittel, Ippolito Caffi and Arthur John Strutt.
